Overnight there is a slight chance for light showers and snow showers above 4,000 feet, Diamond Lake Summit is still covered in snow and caution should be taken driving in the high country through tomorrow morning. Patchy for will develop at the coast and west side valleys by tomorrow morning but won’t linger long into the day with increasing sunshine in the afternoon.

Monday afternoon is when our next storm system will bringing moderate to heavy rain and gusty winds to the area. This system will be tapping into tropical moisture meaning two things: more moisture will be present to create heavy rain at times for the coast and higher elevations on the west side as well as high snow levels, between 6,000 and 7,000 feet. This storm will create river rises but not expecting flooding at this time. This storm will linger into early Thursday which means all areas will receive decent precipitation by Thursday with drying conditions Friday. Stay tuned to Newswatch12 for the latest on the timing and threats of this next storm system.

Thanks for logging on and have a great weekend!
