After another mainly dry and warm week, another weekend storm will impact those with outdoor plans, both Saturday and Sunday. In terms of rainfall, this will NOT be like last weekend’s storm and will be one more typical/beneficial for late spring. Rainfall will be highest west of the Cascades, with a relative minimum from the Klamath Basin to the Christmas Valley.
In areas with the highest confidence in rainfall (west of the Cascades), consider altering your irrigation schedules. This system will bring another big cool down with high temperatures 15-25 degrees lower than today (Thursday). Snow levels drop to 4500 feet, especially Saturday night into Sunday morning, and temperatures could lower to near freezing east of the Cascades. Any accumulating snow, however, will be most likely above 5500 feet. Frost/freeze potential increases Sunday night into Monday morning, especially in the colder valleys of northern California and east of the Cascades.
