Showers expected to clear by Thanksgiving
November 21, 2012
After an initial drenching Tuesday and Wednesday, forecasters are predicting a warm, dry Thanksgiving in Grass Valley.
"The main thing to keep a heads up on is we are going to have another round of rain coming through," said Brooke Bingaman, a forecaster with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.
"The good news is that it will start clearing up Wednesday evening and hopefully be dry for Thanksgiving morning and during the day."
Showers are expected to begin today with the bulk of the heavy rainfall happening between tonight and Wednesday morning, Bingaman said.
"The heaviest rain will be happening when most people are in bed," Bingaman said.
There is between a 60 percent and 80 percent chance of precipitation for today and a 90 percent chance for Wednesday. Total accumulation is expected to be between three-quarters of an inch and eight-tenths of an inch, Bingaman said. Temperatures are expected to be in the high to mid 50s.
Thanksgiving should be dry with temperatures around the mid-60s, Bingaman said. That good weather is anticipated to last into Friday, possibly even Saturday.
"Looking dry for Thanksgiving in Grass Valley," Bingaman said.
As a warmer system approaches, snow is only expected at higher elevations, above 6,000 feet, Bingaman said.
