…Change to Winter conditions this weekend… High pressure over the west coast will move into the central Pacific on Thursday and Friday. This will allow arctic air to move south from Alaska and northern Canada and lower high temperature readings from Friday to Sunday by 20 to 30 degrees. The initial blast of cold air is forecast to reach the area late Friday or early Saturday as a strong cold front moves into northern California and northwest Nevada. Ahead of the front…Winds are likely to increase and may be Strong at times. The front should move south and east of the area by late Saturday afternoon. There is a chance for Valley rain and mountain snow along the front. Rain will probably only occur ahead of the front…As snow levels will quickly drop to Valley floors once the front passes. At this time significant snow accumulations are not forecast to occur in the Sierra or Western Nevada. Cold air should continue to affect much of the west into early next week as the main storm track will be from the north. Models are indicating additional storms may move into the Sierra and Western Nevada Sunday through Tuesday. The track of the storms is uncertain. However models show there is some potential for significant snow accumulations early next week.

…Change to much colder and more unsettled weather for the interior of northern California this weekend… High pressure over northern California will shift westward by the end of the week as a series of progressively stronger disturbances drop down the west coast from the north bringing a much colder airmass along with a chance of showers to the region. A strong cold front is expected to move across northern California Friday night signaling the beginning of this change in the weather. It will usher a much colder airmass southward into northern California and will be accompanied by scattered showers along with breezy to locally windy conditions. Snow levels will lower rapidly into the foothill elevations…However initial precipitation amounts are expected to be generally light. Cold and showery weather is forecast to continue over the weekend and into early next week…Though there is some potential for more significant precipitation to develop next week.
