More Rain and Snow Forecast for NorCal this Week with a Bigger Storm Expected this Weekend
As we enter into the third week of December in Northern California, we’re seeing more of the same weather – rain and snow. As a small weather patter is expected to to enter NorCal on Wednesday, another big storm is on the horizon, possibly bringing ANOTHER Holiday week of difficult travel.
The colder temperatures prevalent throughout NorCal will bring snowfall as low as 2,000 feet on Wednesday, but the precipitation is supposed to be light and only last for a limited time:
Heads up! Some rain and snow is forecast on Wednesday with low snow levels in the morning. Elevations down to around 2000 feet may see some light accumulation in the morning, before snow levels rise to around 3500-4500 by the evening. #cawx pic.twitter.com/qagoWA9nIQ— NWS Sacramento (@NWSSacramento) December 16, 2019
While you may need your umbrella or snow shovel for a day or two during the week, that’s hardly the news here. As the week progresses, it looks more and more like we could see another large storm this coming weekend, right when many people will be traveling for the Christmas break.
Currently, there are no hard snow or rain numbers in the forecast, but it’s looking like it could be much wetter and last for the entirety of the weekend:
Rain/snow chances return to the forecast mid-week but we are keeping an eye on the potential for a wetter system this weekend. #CAwx pic.twitter.com/4wshXU1ZtR— NWS Sacramento (@NWSSacramento) December 17, 2019
The upcoming weekend storm is in its infancy, so we still can’t tell jus how much rain and snow it will bring, but expect heavy rain and snowfall. Here’s the forecast for the different areas of NorCal:
Stay dry out there, NorCal!
