Some weak cold storm fronts in the Pacific Northwest this weekend will try unsuccessfully to move south to our area, resulting in increased winds and clouds for us in the Sierra.
Today (Saturday) well above average temperatures will continue with highs again reaching the upper 40s around 10,000’. Clouds are expected to increase throughout the day becoming mostly cloudy by afternoon. Southwest winds will be on the increase as well with gusts reaching 80mph above 10,000’ by early afternoon, before decreasing later in the afternoon.
For tomorrow (Sunday) expect similar warm temperatures and winds and mostly cloudy skies with a possible flurry or two in the afternoon.
Long Term: Our spring conditions will be ending early next week as a more active weather pattern moves in bringing much cooler temperatures and several waves of snow showers beginning on Monday night into Tuesday, Thursday and possibly thru the end on the week.
