Yes, it’s all about the waiting this morning. Showers won’t be entering our area from the north until about noon today, with the heaviest valley/foothills rain and Sierra snow still expected to fall overnight tonight into Thursday morning.

Here’s what you can expect:

• Dry morning commute
• Light rain begins midday
• Likely wet for evening commute
• Heaviest rain between 10 p.m. tonight – 3 a.m. tomorrow
• .25” – .50” totals for valley
• 1” – 2” totals for foothills (maybe even more around Grass Valley/Nevada City)
• WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY between 10 p.m. – 4 a.m. for elevations above 6000’ for 4” – 8” snow by Thursday morning.
• WINTER STORM WARNING between 10 p.m. – 4 a.m. for elevations above 7500’ for 12” – 16” snow by Thursday morning, gusty southwest winds around 25-35 mph

Measurable rain later day will end our streak of dry days so far this winter in Sacramento at 52!
The old record of 46 days was set in 1884.

We’ll see a lull in precipitation through much of the day Thursday, with another light round of valley rain/Sierra snow possible late Thursday night into Friday morning.
