Much needed rain hits Nevada County at last

About .65 inches of rain fell during a storm event that struck the Sierra Foothills on Thursday, said weather officials in the late afternoon.

While the bulk of the precipitation fell in the late morning and early afternoon, sporadic showers are possible throughout Thursday, said Drew Peterson, National Weather Service Meteorologist.

Furthermore, a storm system predicted to hit the Pacific Northwest over the weekend may track far enough to the south to drop more rain on the region, Peterson said.

“It’s an unsettled pattern,” he said.

A chance of rain will persist throughout the weekend, Peterson said.
