Sacramento Valley rainfall is expected to taper off tonight with some lingering showers into Saturday. In the Northern Sierra Nevada, accumulating snow is expected on mountain roads through the day today and into tonight.
Forecasters with the National Weather Service say there’s a potential for travel disruption from snowfall over mountain roads above 5,000 feet. Snow showers may linger into Saturday night with additional light accumulations as the storm exits to the south and east.
Meanwhile, the heavy rain in Southern California is bringing worries of mudslides where recent wildfires left mountainsides exposed. A 10-mile stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway was closed overnight in Ventura County because of high likelihood of rock slides in an area made bare by last year’s Springs Fire in Camarillo.
The National Weather Service is offering a more positive forecast for the likelihood of a wet December in California.
Snow and light showers are expected to return to the region.
It's was a wet commute for Sacramento-area motorists Thursday morning. But forecasters say it's expected to be dry this weekend.
The hot weather will be in the Sacramento region for a few more days, but some relief is on the way.
