Temperatures warmed up more than I expected today, with most areas seeing low- to mid-40s. With clear skies and calms winds tonight, the temperature will fall back below the freezing mark. Clouds quickly move in by Sunday afternoon, and precipitation is not far behind. A light rain/sleet mixture persists through tomorrow night, though we aren’t expecting any accumulation and minimal to no disruptions Monday morning.
Through tonight: Mostly clear and cold tonight, with a light north wind at 5 mph. Lows will fall below freezing in all locations, ranging from 24 to 28 degrees. Some outlying spots far from the city center may end up in the low 20s.

Tomorrow (Sunday): Clear and cold to start the day, with overcast skies developing by the early afternoon. The increased cloud cover will help limit daytime warming, with highs topping out in the upper 30s to around 40 degrees. Light rain/sleet moves in from the southwest after 3 p.m. Surface temperatures should be in the mid-30s in most locations at the onset of the precipitation, and temperatures are not likely to move much through the overnight period. Some sleet mixing in with rain is possible in some locations (especially north and west of town), with little to no accumulation expected.
Mammoth amounts of snow: It’s been a very wet month for California. And some of that wetness has translated into a lot of snow in the high Sierras. Mammoth Mountain has already broken its record for February snowfall, with almost two weeks left in the month! I am jealous, to say the least.
