Dry spell before it rains again

Forecasters say a dry, warming trend will continue today and last through Wednesday afternoon before more threats of rain Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday in western Nevada County.

“Thursday, another trough will cool us off and make it cloudy,” said Harry Stockman at the Qwikcast.com weather service. “There will be a chance of showers, particularly on Friday.”

The National Weather Service in Sacramento said temperatures will climb today into the mid to upper 60s, with lows in the mid-40s. Both temperature ranges are supposed to last through Wednesday, with little wind.

The National Weather Service said there is a 30 percent chance for rain Wednesday night. There is a 20 percent chance for rain Thursday and Friday as clouds move back in and highs dip again into the mid-50s, with lows in the mid-30s and a chance for frost.

The Weather Channel’s Web site predicts a 50 percent chance for rain in western Nevada County Thursday, with the chance dropping to 40 percent for Friday. The site foresees clouds over the weekend with a 60 percent chance of rain on April 12.
