The first storm coming in from Southern California will bring rain and snow showers to the Bay Area and Foothills Sunday evening, with light Sierra snowfall. Meanwhile, most of the Northern California Valley will remain sunny and dry. Even temperatures are expected to warm into the upper 60s. However, showers may linger for some areas through Monday.
The second storm will cause slick and messy roads Tuesday night heading into Wednesday, the perfect backdrop as you cozy up to the fireplace or play a card game while video conferencing your friends. Rain totals in the Valley could reach .10 to .25 inches, and some spots could see as much as .50 inches of rain.
If you’re planning to hunker down in the Sierra, snowfall totals could be as high as 1.5 feet of snow by Wednesday. Snow levels are expected to drop as low as 2,000 foot elevations, bringing about an inch or two of snow. Plan for chain control and possible closures through mountain passes.
