While details and snowfall amounts are far from certain this far out, models are indicating a shift towards warm, wet weather next week that could bring back flood danger and high elevation snowfall for the Sierra.

“Heads up! Another atmospheric river storm is possible next week. Details are uncertain this far out but the system could bring heavy rainfall, higher snow levels, gusty winds, and renewed flooding concerns.” – NWS Sacramento

In the meantime, sunny skies are forecasted to grace the California skies this weekend and state officials are urging residents to clean up from the recent storms before preparing for what could be a second round of potentially dangerous storms.
