While much of the East and Midwest is trying to dig itself out from under ice and snow, it’s just another week, another forecast for dry, warm weather here in California. However, National Weather Service forecasters say there just might be some rain and snow in our near future.
The ridge that has been keeping weather systems out of the Northern San Joaquin Valley in recent weeks has weakened, and clouds will start to increase today. They will bring lower temperatures, but any rain is likely to remain to the north of us.
Another system is expected to move into the area Thursday, and forecasters say there is a slight chance of showers a bit farther south, with much-needed snow in the Sierra. Come the weekend, there is a possibility of light rain in the Northern San Joaquin Valley.
Overall this week, temperatures are expected to reach a high of the low 60s during the day, dipping into the low 30s at night. For more, go to www.modbee.com/weather.
