of the coastline. rainy think will be heavy at times. late in the afternoon tomorrow. really going to get going. this is kind of a warm storm so we are looking at mountain snow and starting out about 7000 feet or so. but they could see a good couple feet. maybe 3 feet of snow in some of the higher terrain. temperatures right now not all that bad. lots of 50s under cloudy skies this hour but we are going to see plenty of rain showing up around the state in toward the central valley. kind of a mild beginning to the storm looks like it is landing on some tropical moisture. keeping rain down below and snow up above. the higher country going to see some of that. making its way across that area but really across the top of the peaks above 7000 feet. driving over the mountains doesn't look too bad although it will be very, very wet. so here is your storm system for today. bringing clouds wrapping around off the coastline. picking it up and putting itself together. it will start to slowly drag its way towards the coastline as we head into tomorrow. so we will notice those winds
