As high pressure starts to break down we will continue to see high clouds stream into Northern California but it will still be warm with highs in the mid 70’s at least through the beginning of next week.
By Tuesday the next storm will arrive and we will be looking at a chance for rain in the Northstate on Tuesday and Wednesday before we dry things out again on Thursday. It’s not a really cold storm but we could see snow levels down to as low as 4000 feet by Wednesday, otherwise, look for snow levels to be above 5000 feet.
It’s still early to estimate rain and snow totals but preliminary thoughts bring us to about a half of an inch of rain in the valley and slightly higher amounts in the foothills and mountains. We could also see about a foot of snow above 5000 feet.
Even though it’s expected to dry out next Thursday the long range forecast models are consistently showing us going out of March like a lion meaning we’ve got a chance for more rain in the last week of this month.
