Special Weather Statement

Cool and showery weather starting this weekend and continuing
into the middle of next week...

On Saturday a cold trough of low pressure will set up over the
West Coast. This will bring much cooler daytime temperatures along
with breezy conditions late tonight into Saturday and the chance of
showers Saturday through Sunday. The forecast for this weekend calls
for daytime highs from the upper 40s to mid 50s on Saturday and even
cooler on Sunday. Snow levels may lower to as low as 2000 feet on
Sunday and possibly as low as 1500 feet by Monday. Roads in the
mountain areas could be affected by snow... such as the Santa Cruz
Mountains and the North Bay hills.

The cold and showery pattern will continue into the middle of next
week... with snow possible in the hills across the district.

Persons who are planning on traveling this weekend and next week
should pay attention to the latest forecasts as wintry travel weather
can be expected particularly over the Sierra mountain passes. In
addition... persons near the burn areas in Monterey and Santa Cruz
counties should also continue to closely monitor the latest forecasts
in the event that rainfall projections end up higher than currently
