The much needed active weather pattern is long underway and we will continue to see rain and snow with it. This weekend will be a relative break, however, with only isolated showers activity. Spotty clusters of showers are all that’s left of the cold front that pushed through our area on Friday. These showers will last through the morning on Sunday and then fizzle out by the afternoon. Clouds will also decrease through the day on Sunday allowing for the sun to come out for the afternoon. This break in precipitation will be short-lived as another storm system will enter the area Monday. A cold front associated with the storm will move in into the afternoon Monday and will push rain and wind onshore with it. The storm will then take on a southeast pattern and move into middle California. Therefore, rain will only last until evening and then conditions will turn to isolated showers by the evening.
Snow levels will drop again after frontal passage on Monday. The upper levels of the Basin, Cascades, and Siskiyous will see a rain/snow mixture Monday evening into Tuesday morning. Northern California will see the rain and snow last a bit longer as the system moves further south. After the system rolls out of our area, we will get a break in precipitation on Wednesday allowing for a few peeks of sunshine. However, the upper level jet stream is keeping our area active and another set of storms will move in starting on Thursday.
Thanks for logging on and enjoy your weekend!
