Weather change predicted for next week

The National Weather Service in Sacramento said Thursday morning that another round of probable wet weather will move into the area through Saturday.

A cold cell Sunday from the Gulf of Alaska could bring more rain and drop snow levels to 4,000 feet as it lingers through Monday.

“It looks like light rain Friday night and Saturday,” said Harry Stockman at the weather service. “There will be a more intense wave Sunday bringing snow down to lower elevations, but we expect the precipitation to end on Monday.”

The National Weather Service is predicting that will happen Monday night, with a very slight chance of showers Tuesday. But overall, partly cloudy conditions are predicted from Monday night through next Thursday.

Although the forecast is promising for gardeners and other sun worshipers, spring weather conditions in the Sierra can change rapidly, as witnessed by the recent rash of storms.

The La Nina weather pattern from the south Pacific could also add to the uncertainty.
