The first outer rain bands from a powerful Pacific storm headed to Northern California on Sunday brought light rain and wind and renewed warnings of possible flooding in the already soggy region.
Widely scattered showers and rare February thunderstorms move through on Monday. Sunshine returns Tuesday and record warmth continues through Wednesday. Big changes arrive late this week with a potential snow event. Stay tuned and check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
Small-town festivals and ski races across the region are in danger of being curtailed or canceled, jeopardizing needed tourism dollars.
The Latest on storms in California (all times local):
Sunday will be another extremely mild day with highs bumping up close to 60 degrees across much of southern Minnesota. Record highs will likely fall again for many locations through early next week, before big changes arrive late next week. Long range weather models are still trying to latch onto plowable snowfall across parts of the Upper Midwest Thursday into Friday. It's still way too early to tell what the powerful Pacific storm will do when it plows through, but stay tuned. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
