Mother Nature apparently pulled an April Fool's prank on the Valley.
What was expected to be a strong storm bringing rain, gusty winds and the possibility of hail and thunder on Tuesday moved slower than anticipated and may not bring as much rain as expected, National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Bagnall said.
He said there is a chance of light rain this morning, but he expects only 0.03 inches of new rainfall from Wednesday's showers.
Valley skies should clear by the afternoon, but the storm is expected to last a little longer in the mountains. Bagnall said about 1 inch of new snowfall is expected above 6,000 feet in the mountains Wednesday morning.
