Rain Thursday, Maybe A Little Snow Overnight

A strong cold front will cross the state on Saturday.

A storm system tapping an atmospheric river of moisture is bringing heavy rain to portions of California, including some burn areas, through Thursday as heavy snow potentially snarls travel in the Sierra Nevada. Beach front districts in Northern California could see upward of 2 to 5 creeps of rain throughout the following 48 hours, with wind blasts anticipated that would achieve 50 mph. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 40s and 30s Saturday with "short-lived showers overnight Friday", KKTV reported. Drier weather will develop for early next week, yet more rain showers are possible around Thanksgiving Day. Central Oregon is seeing more rain showers than anything else as snow levels are still fairly high around 3,900'.

As heavy rain moves into the coastal areas, there is a flood threat from Portland to San Francisco. Despite that, temperatures will be warm enough for this to be all rain.

Colder air builds in Thursday night, with rain changing to snow, first in the hilltops and then in the lower elevations.

Moderate rain is now moving through parts of northern California and Portland with isolated flooding, debris flow and rock slides possible. High temperatures will be around 58 degrees.
