SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Mid May in Northern California can see lots of different kinds of weather from very late storms to early heat. Well, we've seen the storms and now the heat returns.
Earlier this week, snow pounded the Sierra and thunderstorms rocked Northern California Valley locations, but the weather is leveling out. No new storms are forecast for the next several days and a warm up is coming.
Friday will see Valley locations move into the mid 80s. This is well above average but far from records. Saturday and Sunday will see widespread low to mid 90s. Some records will be close, but breaking records will be difficult.
The Sierra Foothills will see temps warm into the 80s for Saturday and Sunday and the Sierra will see some upper 60s. The warmer weather will melt recent snow and creeks and streams will be running fast and cold.
