    Big Change To Unsettled, Colder Weather for Northern And Central California Late Week

    The sunny and unseasonably warm weather over the area now gives way to a cold storm by Thursday and Friday.

    The storm forms in the Gulf of Alaska and drops south bringing lower elevation rain showers Thursday into Friday along with a considerable drop in temperature. Places in the Central Valley will be as much as 30 degrees colder Friday than they will be on Tuesday. 80s are likely Tuesday but it won’t get out of the 50s Friday.

    Snow is likely to fall in the Sierra. Snow levels fall to 5,000 to 6,000 feet Thursday then down to 3,000 to 3,500 feet Friday. This is not going to be a big snow event but 4 to 8 inches of snow seems likely causing slick travel.


    Be prepared for this change, especially if you have plans on heading into the mountains late this week.
