Good Wednesday morning, 

The forecast this week has been all about the low pressure system. It has taken the stage for a show and wants to play all week long. 

It has been spinning north to south and now is starting its Eastward move on shore. 

You can get a good idea of where it is at from this picture from the sky:

The bands of rain is spinning around our forecast area today and we are in the center.

It looks like another day of somewhat dry weather,  then rain chances come back tonight and through Thursday. 

This low is dancing all around central and Southern California. Today it will move over the California Nevada border around midnight tonight.

Then park itself there spinning away.  Later Thursday it actually drifts back toward the west, before it finally moves out on Friday.

Showers do remain in the forecast into Friday now. It looks like today will be a lot like Tuesday with rain chances more late in the day.

Tonight we will likely see less rain then last night. Tuesday we actually received another 1/3 to 2/3 of rain in the last 24 hours.

This is going to bring us to 100% of normal or above, if this keeps up like it is forecast.

Snow levels are fairly low and snow is expected 4500 feet and above.

The most rain will fall over the mountains and interior over the next day, where 2 more inches are possible.

Coastal areas and valleys will see much less. Maybe another 1/4  to 1/3 of an inch.

Thursday we will report on lake totals and rain percentages for the year.

Looking into the weekend, we will clear out Friday and warming Saturday and Sunday.

High pressure sets up for next week and we look to be dry all week.

Enjoy the ride.
