Significant storm systems forecasted for this week

Night and morning low clouds and fog will blanket the coastal areas through Tuesday. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, skies will be mostly cloudy with above normal temperatures. The first of two storm systems will arrive on Wednesday, bringing a chance of rain in the afternoon and evening. Rain amounts are expected between .25" - .75". Snow is possible in the higher mountain elevations between 6,500'-7,000'.

A second storm system will move in Thursday night, bringing rain Friday morning through Saturday evening, with the heaviest rain during the day on Friday. Rain for the second storm system is expected to be 1-2" for the coastal and valley areas and 2-4" in the foothills and mountains. Snow levels during the day Friday are above 7,000' but should drop between 5,000'-5,500' Friday night and Saturday. With strong southerly winds in the forecast, winter storm conditions are possible, which could result in the chance for thunderstorms. These weather conditions will cause slick roadways and flooding in low lying areas. This storm has the potential to be the most significant storm this region has experienced in some time.
