The much anticipated cold front will continue to push into the Northstate through this afternoon.
Based on radar trends, it appears most of the valley will struggle to hit a 0.25" of rain with isolated spots closer to 0.50".
Cold air will continue to filter into the Northstate behind the cold front this evening. There will still be a chance of isolated to widely scattered showers behind today's cold front, with snow levels dropping. It will probably take until Thursday afternoon before snow levels drop below 5,000 ft but we'll continue to monitor levels.
A secondary front will move into the Northstate Thursday evening, bringing 1-3 inches down to as low as 3,500-4,000ft.
A cut-off low will just miss the Northcoast to the west this weekend so we'll likely remain dry.
Models continue to trend towards another, less amplified, ridge of high by next week. So after today & tomorrow's rain, we'll remain dry through the extended forecast.
