TODAY'S FORECAST

SUNNY AND DRY! 48°F 6:30AM Hey hey Giovanni here. Happy 1st day of May and hello warmer spring weather! The cooler days are behind us for now as we head into the middle of the week.Today's temperatures may reach the upper 60s with overnight lows in the mid 40s. This warming trend is expected to continue through Saturday before a slight chance of showers mainly impacts the Sierra by Sunday into Monday.We may only see partly cloudy skies cooler temps and a few sprinkles from this inside slider as it drops into the Great Basin. Dryer and warmer weather arrives on Tuesday.

The long range forecast keeps us under a shower threat through mid May, but it's doubtful we will see any significant rain. May is really the last month of the season for any real rain as June is typically becomes hot and dry. With the snow pack still way above normal this season. It doesn't really matter if it rains at all through June. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
