A cold front is expected to bring a chance of light showers overnight to the central San Joaquin Valley and possible snow at higher elevations of the southern Sierra Nevada, the National Weather Service in Hanford said.
Meteorologist Jim Andersen said there is a 60% chance of light rain starting Wednesday night in Fresno, which is expected to taper off Thursday morning. There is a slight chance that scattered showers may linger into Thursday afternoon.
The front is expected to bring 0.60 of an inch of rain in Fresno and 2 to 3 inches of snow above 8,000 feet for the Sierra.
Thursday's high is forecast at 70 degrees with a low of 50. Friday will also be 70 degrees, and then sunny, warmer weather returns Saturday, when the high is projected to reach 74 degrees.
