One low pressure area is now moving across Northern California with another system dropping southward toward the north state.   Today we will have scattered showers with snow levels 2500 to 3000 feet in the north and slightly higher south.  The showers will end tonight but more rain and gusty south winds moves into the area Thursday as the next low pressure area will be along the coast. Snow levels will be 2000 to 2500 feet north and 3000 to 3500 feet south. 

Friday the precipitation will turn the showers as the low moves eastward across our area.  Snow levels will be 2000 feet north and 3000 feet south.  The showers will end Saturday morning with partly cloudy skies in the afternoon.  Sunday looks partly cloudy with a few light showers in the mountains.  

Monday the first in another series of low pressure areas will be approaching the coast (see map below).  Precipitation from this system will spread inland during the afternoon and evening.  More storms are expected Tuesday through Thursday.
