Tuesday – Friday:
The dry weather pattern continues through Friday with mostly sunny skies expected. Highs in the 40s Tuesday and dropping into the 30s Wednesday behind a dry cold front. Ridgetop winds gusting up to 60+ mph at times from the north/northeast through Wednesday.
Warming back into the 40s Thursday into Friday. Breezy with west winds of 30-40+ mph over the ridges.
Saturday we have another cold front moving through. Highs dropping into the 30s at the base and 20s up top. This system could bring sun & clouds with the chance for a few scattered snow showers Saturday, but not expecting more than a dusting of snow.
We should see mostly sunny skies again for Sunday with highs warming back into the 40s at the base and 30s on the upper mountain.
We may transition to a more active pattern the first week of March. We are tracking 2 systems for next week that could bring some snow to the northern Sierra. We are going into cut-off low season where the storm can wobble down off the West Coast and take a while to move inland. The track and timing of each system becomes harder to forecast.
We will continue to watch both systems next week and will let you know when we get a clearer picture on the timing & track of each system, and how much snow if any each system could bring.
