After a gray morning and a blue afternoon, another cold front moved into northern California on Friday evening. We will have a chance of light rain in the valley and snow in the mountains tonight, and another chance of wet weather on Saturday. Another Pacific storm is moving over the west coast right now, and it will bring our northern counties mostly rain in the valley and snow in the mountains tonight and overnight. It will be light though. Overnight lows will range from 10s in the mountains to 30s and 40s in the valley and foothills. Another wave will bring a better chance of light rain in the valley and snow in the mountains Saturday morning and afternoon. Highs on Saturday will range from the 30s in the mountains to the 40s and 50s in the valley and foothills.
This small storm will quickly leave our area late Saturday, and in its wake we will have a clearing of our skies and gusty northerly winds on Sunday. Our weather will dry out again for much of next week. The west coast will be under a ridge of high pressure for much of next week, but a few small areas of low pressure will move up, above, and down from this ridge toward northern California. They won’t bring a good chance of rain or snow, but going through our area will give us more gusty winds. At this time, the wind does not seem very strong, but it will be noticeable. Valley lows will remain in the lower 30s than average and lower 40s through next week. Valley highs will drop from the low 50s to the lower and mid 60s by next week.
