For the Forecast, a strong frontal system passed through early this morning moving Eastward. We will see isolated rain showers in its wake prior to the next front with heavy rain reaching our zone this evening. Freezing levels will begin to drop Thursday, with light precipitation amounts expected for the day. Friday morning at this time is looking unsettled prior to a deep surface low arriving on Friday night into Saturday, with moderate to heavy precipitation and freezing levels around 1800 meters. A moist South west flow will bring light  precipitation Sunday through Monday with freezing levels dropping and hovering around the 1500 meter level for this time period.  Tuesday may see another cooler wet Pacific front for more snow at mid mountain elevations. Will have more information on the out look for next week on Monday.

    Big Picture from Monday. Lots of moisture heading our way.

                                 Hurricane Ana is just south of the Jet Stream in image below.
                Jet stream acting like its an El Nino Year. Hurricane Ana may help the Draught in Cal.

     Cooler temperatures on the up side of the jet stream could bring some welcome snow.

     Looking wet to the South of our Zone.

    May see some breaks Friday morning as the low moves South.

    Cooler temperatures for next week as the low moves South.
