More rain coming; snowfall possible

The rain that was predicted to arrive last night will continue through today and may even bring snow down to 3,500 feet.

Harry Stockman of the weather service said the cold storm line is projected to be just above Interstate 80-Nevada County line, “and the amounts of precipitation will be light but there is a possibility of snow, or rain and snow, but probably just rain in Grass Valley.”

The National Weather Service forecasts snow through noon today on the western slope of the Sierra north of Nevada County. Sierra travelers were advised to take chains and warm clothing in case the storm takes a colder turn here this morning.

Both the national weather service and the Weather Channel’s Web site forecast partly cloudy to sunny skies the rest of the week with a chance of a few showers Sunday and again next Wednesday.

Highs are expected to be in the mid to lower 50s today, dropping to just above freezing tonight. Warmer air Wednesday will bring temperatures back up into the high 50s and lower 60s as the week progresses, with lows climbing to the high 30s to low 40s.
