Near to below freezing morning temperatures Sunday. The next
storm will arrive Thursday bringing cold, wet, and windy weather
to our region.


With clear skies and light winds, ample radiational cooling
overnight will lead to another very chilly morning tomorrow.
Freeze warning remains in effect for valley areas from 1-9 am
Sunday. Residents should remember to: Protect Plants, Pets, &

From Sunday night into Tuesday, weak ridging develops over NorCal
which will subtly warm temperatures, but mornings will still be
chilly.  JBB


Unsettled weather is expected for much of the extended period. A
weak wave will move through the region Wednesday, possibly
spreading light precipitation mainly across the northern portions
of our forecast area.

A stronger system will likely impact Northern California Thursday
next week, with the GFS, European, and Canadian models in fairly
good agreement. This system will likely bring a quick shot of
moderate rain and mid-elevation mountain snow. This system looks
to be a fair bit breezier than the last few storm systems, which
when combined with rain could bring power outages. Additionally,
recently fallen leaves could bring localized flooding with clogged
drains and gutters.

Drier weather looks to set in Friday into next Saturday. There are
some hints of another system late next weekend, but confidence is
low at this time.




VFR conditions with generally light winds the next 24 hours.
