Clouds depart, winds slacken tomorrow.
The thick clouds which have made a rather gray and dreary Sunday in Northern California will depart tonight. The winds will slowly die down too, but will take a little longer to do so. The only clouds you’ll see tomorrow are some high level clouds which will just filter the sunshine a little bit and keep things pretty. The winds will start to die down as well as we continue through the afternoon. The strongest winds look to be in the morning, gusts to 30mph are possible, but they’ll be decreasing through the afternoon towards evening.
Thursday will have our first of two systems on the way to the NorthState to give us the chance for some showers. That system will bring a return of the clouds and breezy winds but will likely keep most of the rain in the mountains with only a few showers making it into the valley. The weekend is the next chance for rain and brings varying intensities of that rain depending on which model you look at. The GFS brings quite a bit, coupled with very cold temperatures, which could lower snow levels down to around 3,000 ft. The Euro on the other hand, delays the system into the following week, bringing lots of rain, but delaying it until Monday and Tuesday. It still is a very long way off, and nothing is certain yet. We will continue to watch this system as it moves in and update you on the latest.
