It has been cold and frosty the last few nights and this will continue the next few days with lows in the mid to upper 20’s in the valley and single digits for many of the higher mountain communities. Our daytime highs will rebound into the mid 50’s with mostly sunny skies at least through Friday.
The next storm is expected to arrive on Saturday with rain and snow in Trinity county by the late morning hours and snow levels should start off between 2500 and 3500 feet depending on how much cold air gets trapped by the clouds in advance of the storm. The valley rain is expected to arrive in the mid afternoon hours. Heavier rain and snow will move through Saturday night into Sunday morning with snow levels dropping to as low as 1000 feet in some areas as colder air from the Gulf of Alaska moves in. More rain and snow is expected on Sunday.
We’ll dry things out on Monday and Tuesday with highs back in the low 50’s in the valley. We’re not seeing much consistency in the forecast models after Tuesday of next week but there are signs of more rain and snow by Wednesday of next week. Stay tuned.
