Nevada County could see rain on horizon for middle of week

Even though summer is just six weeks away, Nevada County might see just a little more rain starting Wednesday.

The potential for showers and thunderstorms has shifted south, according to the National Weather Service. A pattern change is currently projected for the middle of next week bringing cooler, potentially wetter weather across Northern California.

According to the weather service, the upper level low pressure system that brought mountain thunderstorms Thursday afternoon and evening shifted into southern California by Friday.

An upper ridge will continue to build to the north over the Pacific Northwest, but Nevada County can expect warm temperatures to continue through the weekend.

We should see a dry and warm start to the work week before shifting to cooler, cloudier and potentially wet weather, the weather service said.

Today is predicted to be sunny, with a high near 75. Sunday will be more of the same, with a high near 78 in Grass Valley. Some clouds could start rolling in Monday with the weather predicted to remain partly sunny through Tuesday.

A slight chance of showers is currently predicted for Wednesday, with a high near 72. Showers are likely Thursday with a high near 66 degrees, the weather service said.
