A weakening cold front will continue to break apart and exit the Northstate today. The valley can expect to see the clouds thin by the afternoon hours with highs in the 60s.
Look for partly cloudy skies on Thursday with highs in the upper 60’s to right around 70. The peak of this warming trend will be on Friday with highs in the mid 70’s under sunny skies. Another storm will approach the Pacific Northwest and clip Northern California Saturday night into Sunday giving the valley and mountains a chance for isolated showers. Again, anything we do see is expected to be on the light side but is expected to be stronger than Thursday night’s storm. Snow levels will be around 5000 feet.
A weak ridge of high pressure will build over the Northstate on Monday giving us sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 60’s.
Another storm will approach the Northstate through the day on Tuesday giving us increasing clouds but dry conditions. The rain isn’t expected to arrive until Tuesday night and lasting off and on throughout the day on Wednesday. It’s still early to predict how much rain we will see out of the storm but preliminary reports indicate about a quarter of an inch with snow levels around 4000 feet.
Although the rain will be a good thing we need a lot more than the few weak storms that will be moving through the next 7 to 10 days.
