Dry weather returns Friday, with a warm, weak system spreading
some light precipitation over the northern mountains on Saturday.
More widespread rain is expected with another mild system early
Sunday. A colder storm system is expected to move across the
region late Sunday into early Monday, bringing mountain snow. Snow
levels will initially be above pass levels with this event but
will rapidly drop below pass levels in the evening, to 4000-5000
feet by Monday morning, causing travel problems.

Impacts:
Motorists traveling into the mountains Sunday night into early
Monday should be prepared for winter weather conditions. Slick
roads are possible at lower elevations from wet leaves and clogged
drains.

Precipitation Totals:

Sunday into Monday:
A quarter of inch to 1 inch of rain for the Valley, around 1 to 2
inches for the foothills, with 1 to 3 inches possible in the
mountains.

Above 7000 feet, 4 to 8 inches of snow accumulation, a foot or
more over higher peaks.

Winds:
Southerly wind gusts to 25-30 mph in the Sacramento Valley and 55
mph over the crest on Sunday.
