Outlook and Forecast: Mostly cloudy skies and cold temperatures in the foothills today, ahead of a weak, yet cold storm system, on tap to move into the foothills late this evening and overnight bringing snow showers with light accumulations. Snow levels will be low, starting out around 2500-3000 ft. lowering to around 1500-2000 ft, with a dusting, up to an inch of snow in the GV / NC areas, with 1-2 inches possible in the upper foothills. A slight chance of a dusting below 2000 ft. Expect snowy, slick conditions in the morning with a light snow cover. The rest of the week looks mostly sunny and cool with temperature slightly below normal as high pressure builds along the west coast.
The 6-10 day extended outlook forecast models continue to show dry weather through the end of the year into the first week of 2016. After that, the storm track looks to undercut the Canadian high pressure ridge, bringing storminess to California as milder, wetter El Nino type storms begin to affect the entire state. (see graffic)
