Sunny clear skies dominated the area on Saturday. Expect warmer conditions for the week ahead! Temperatures are up several degrees in the past 24 hours, as a storm system has left the region. However, dense patchy fog is forecast to impact the San Joaquin Valley on Sunday morning. This will cause hazardous travel conditions, so drive with caution.
We can expect another storm system to enter the region on Monday evening through Wednesday. This will not be as severe as the last system this past week. However, we can still expect 12-18 inches of snow in the Sierra Nevada. The National Weather Service issued a winter storm advisory for this area early next week. We can mainly expect the snow to stay above 6,000 ft, but very little snow may fall below that. The mountain communities can expect those winds to pick up during this time, and about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of rainfall. Rain amounts in the SJV will stay closer to 1/2 an inch.
We will continue to track this storm system throughout the week and will have updates on any changes.
