Weather forecasters say some late season thunderstorms will be moving into the high mountain areas Thursday.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Jason Clapp says these isolated mountain thunderstorms will likely stick around for a few days.

"Basically got a low pressure system drifting South into California and kind of hang out over Central California and create that instability that will remain over the area through the weekend at least," says Clapp.

Forecasters say we might see some of those showers drift into the Valley over the next few days. The storms could drop as much as a quarter to a half inch of rain-- with some areas seeing more with isolated thunderstorms.

"But then you might have a storm-- a spot couple of miles away that doesn't really get any storms over it-- doesn't hardly get anything," he says. "So it's very patchy."
