Weather should be a repeat of Thanksgiving Day

Expect the weekend to be a repeat of Thursday’s weather: dry, partly cloudy and in the 40s and low 50s.

A cold front that moved the area last night should drop the temperatures a few degrees today, but South Shore isn’t expected to get any rain or snow from the system. Morning temperatures today are expected to be 25 degrees at South Shore and 11 degrees in Truckee.

“It gets really questionable after Sunday,” said National Weather Service forecaster Dave Pike. “I would think Monday or Tuesday there is a chance in the Sierra for some snow.”

The next storm system is approaching out over the Pacific Ocean and may arrive overnight Sunday. Monday morning and early Tuesday the weather service is predicting a 30 percent chance of rain or snow in the valleys and snow in mountains.

National Weather Service Specialist Bob Melrose said the region gets most of its precipitation through November, December, January and February, but that winter does not officially begin until Dec. 21 at 5:37 a.m.

“We’re still actually in the fall,” he said. “We just had a change in the weather, then it kind of evened out.”
