CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Overnight, there’s a chance for some light isolated showers as a small low pressure center pushes into Northern California, but a lot of that will evaporate before it hits the ground. Some light sprinkles through early Tuesday morning may be possible, but it’ll stay mild as well with lows in low 40s and upper 30s.
Tuesday through early Friday, a second storm develops but holds offshore and sends waves of showers at the Northwest. While they won’t be very strong, the wettest day looks to be Wednesday into early Thursday. In addition, because of the unstable nature of a south/southwest flow, there’s a chance with some afternoon sunshine, the mountains may see an occasional thunderstorm or two Wednesday and Thursday with a slight chance of a stray storm slipping into the valley. Highs will stay mild, in the upper 50s and low 60s and snow lines will jump up well above the Passes to around 7000 feet.
The best news of the week may be that all indications are pointing towards a dry Easter weekend. The showers head south but the warm air sticks around helping highs climb into the upper 60s for both Saturday and Sunday! In fact, Saturday may see the warmest temperatures that we’ve seen this calendar year.
Have a great Tuesday!
