CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
More showers are on the move overnight tonight into Wednesday as the storm continues to sit and spin offshore slinging energy in the form of rain and snow above 3000 feet. It’ll stay chilly as well with lows tonight falling into the mid 30s.
Over the next two days we’ll continue to see snow lines start to move south of the Passes to around 3500 feet late tonight, 2500 feet by Wednesday. A few inches of snow in the higher foothills, while at pass level and above, snow totals could reach 5-10″. Travelers headed into Northern California will hit some heavy snow over the Siskiyou Pass, as parts of that range are under Winter Storm Warnings through Wednesday morning.
Wednesday and Thursday will also see occasional showers and sun breaks but the cool air will keep highs sitting in the upper 40s to near 50 degrees. Most of the showers will be wrapped up by Thursday afternoon, but with all the moisture, some late day sun breaks are about as sunny as we’ll get until the weekend.
By Friday and most of the weekend, high pressure moves back in, clearing out the rain and afternoon clouds. Highs slowly move back into the mid to upper 50s and right now, looks like we’ll have another nice, sunny weekend!
Have a great Wednesday!
