Weekend Weather Check: Some Rain & A Lot of Snow
There's still more rain to come, says the National Weather Service, which predicts a real chance of rain by Friday afternoon and evening, persisting through the night and into Saturday morning with a chance of thunderstorms. As for today, expect mostly cloudy skies and cool temperatures--highs in the low 60s. About 1 to 2 inches of rain in the coastal/valley areas and 2 to 4 in the foothills/mountains are predicted to fall. As for snow, it's good news for boarders: the snow level should drop to 7,000 feet on Friday and then to 4,500 on Saturday. Over a foot is expected at resort level, with less than 6 inches below 6,000 feet, probably sparing the Grapevine from closure.
