Rain showers spread into the area through today with moderate mountain snow expected into this evening, with gusty winds for higher mountains. Expect breezy southerly winds for portions of the Valley today and then northerly winds Friday. Drier conditions and increasingly cold temperatures are expected Friday into the weekend.

A shortwave with a cold front brought some heavier convective snow showers through the Sierra in the evening yesterday, bringing chain controls and travel delays at times. Lingering snow showers continue this morning over the mountains, mainly over the northern Sierra. Cold air behind the front is allowing snow levels to drop to around 4,000-4,500 feet. There are gusty winds being observed over mountain ridges, up to around 40-45 mph.

There will be a bit of a lull in area precipitation this morning, before the next wave moves into northwestern California and spreads southeastward through the area today. Light rain is expected to develop across the Valley, Delta and foothills by afternoon. Snowfall will increase again over the mountains, with snow levels remaining around 4,000-4,500 feet.

Heaviest snow is expected around 2 to 6 pm PST, with the NBM mean snow rates projecting up to an inch an hour. Along with the snow, gusty winds will continue over higher terrain, and when coupled with snow could bring poor visibility at times. These conditions will impact mountain travel, so use caution while traveling over this period. Additional snowfall of around 4 to 8 inches is expected above 5,000 feet.

Dry conditions are expected across the area after midnight as high pressure ridging builds in. Dry weather is expected for Friday, Saturday, and much of the area Sunday.
