The worst of yesterday’s storm is now over with. Some light and scattered showers are still lingering and this will be the case through the evening. Temperatures this afternoon were about 10 degrees below average, and cooler temperatures are expected overnight also. Temperatures will be in the mid 30′s along the Coast, so frost is certainly possible in some locations.
Snow levels this evening will be down to the Valley floor, so any showers that to develop and pass through will be in the form of snow. However, no accumulation is expected in the lower elevations. The higher elevations could see a passing snow shower that produces a dusting, but again no significant accumulation is expected. The main concern is the roadways which saw snowfall last night. Even areas with cooler temperatures this evening will see the threat for icy roads with all of the wet weather we’ve seen within the past 24 hours. For this reason drive cautiously and be prepared to hit snow-packed and icy roads in the passes.
By tomorrow another area of low pressure will track South and bring another, weaker cold front through. This will continue to bring moisture into the area and the chance for showers will remain through the day. Most will be light and scattered, mainly along the Coast and in Northern California. The Valley will see very isolated showers, while the Basin should stay dry. Snow levels will be around 1,600′ so all showers will be strictly snow for the higher elevations. Again, very little to no accumulation is expected.
By Friday high pressure will build back into the NW, so sunny skies are expected through the weekend!
