Storm Tracker Forecast – Stronger wind in the valley and more sunshine on Thursday | Forecast


This Wednesday was bright and windy for Northern California, but our weather will turn windier tonight through Thursday as a storm approaches and we will miss it in the northeast. Wind warning for the Central Valley Thursday. A trough of low pressure will move south of Oregon into the Great Basin tonight and Thursday. Northern California may receive a few light rain showers and snow showers on higher ground, but the main effects of the wave will be stronger winds in the valley and foothills. A wind advisory will be in effect from 1 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, with wind gusts up to 45 mph possible. Our skies will be mostly clear tonight and sunny tomorrow. Lows will range from mountain 10 to valley 40… highs from the 40s to the 70s.

Friday and much of Saturday will be calmer for Northern California with lighter winds and mostly sunny skies. We can expect increased cloudiness late Saturday as a weak Pacific storm moves overhead Sunday, but little to no precipitation will fall in our area. A more vigorous Pacific storm will move onto the west coast next Monday and Tuesday, increasing the chance of rain in the valley and snow in the mountains. It will not be a very cold storm, so snow levels will be high and snow amounts will be low. All areas are expected to receive measurable rainfall with some mountain snow possible. We will have less cloud and more sunshine next Wednesday. Valley lows will climb 30s to 40s…valley highs will remain in the 60s and lower in the 70s.
