Well it looks like another week of  off and on wet weather.   Today an early Sunday a low pressure area will move across Central California.  This system will bring rain to Northern California with snow levels 4000 to 5000 feet. The precipitation will taper off Sunday morning and by Sunday afternoon will be just showers  over the higher elevations.

Partly cloudy Monday and early Tuesday with a few showers over the foothills and mountains.  Then Tuesday night and Wednesday the next low pressure trough moves through the north state (see map below).   This will bring rain to all the area with snow levels continuing 4000 to 5000 feet.  Gusty south winds are expected late Tuesday and early Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday we have a few showers over the mountains with snow levels 3000 to 4000 feet.   The next low pressure trough will move inland Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

  1. Do you see the Tuesday storm having any "rain on snow" ramifications for our filling reservoirs?

  2. Do the long range forecasts show a break in the wet weather pattern any time soon?

  3. The Tuesday storm will bring light to moderate rain with snow in the mountains. Quite a bit of snow fell last week. Bucks Lake got 10 feet in 2 days...so we should have good runoff this spring. Models continue unsettled weather through next weekend and the diverge with European staying wet and the US (GFS) model drier.
