Sunday is the Day

Cold air aloft associated with weak disturbances has been the scenario across the Sierra for the past couple days. This along with morning sunshine continues reveal afternoon convective snow showers across the area. Accumulations will remain light this evening with a couple inches possible above 8,000 ft. Over the next 24 hours, this pattern will continue to erode as an upper-level ridge returns to the Sierra Saturday-Sunday. After a clear start, Saturday will feature snow showers again, however showers will be much more isolated with accumulations less than inch above 8,000 ft. Through Saturday afternoon, winds should begin to turn more north to northeasterly and showers should begin to dissipate. And if you don't mind a brisk northeasterly wind at times, Sunday is the day to get out and really investigate the small Pow left this past week. This pattern will continue and modify into early next week. Bring the chapstick/sunscreen and enjoy!
