A storm expected to reach the central San Joaquin Valley Sunday brings the chance of rain to Fresno and snow to the Sierra.
The National Weather Service says Saturday will become sunny after areas of dense morning fog burn off. Clouds will start to build up in the afternoon in the mountains, and skies above Fresno will cloud up overnight as the storm approaches from the northwest.
Rain is likely across the Valley Sunday, with highs in the 50s to low 60s. The weather service said up to a quarter inch of rain could fall in Fresno.
Yosemite National Park will be snowy and breezy Sunday, with the high near freezing. Shaver Lake will see rain turn to snow as the storm rolls through, with the high forecast at 49 degrees.

The weather service has issued a winter weather advisory above 5,000 feet elevation from Yosemite to Kings Canyon from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Motorists should be ready for snowy conditions and slick roads.
The coming storm will move more quickly through the region than the last two, so snow and rain will taper off Sunday night. Monday is forecast to be mostly sunny in the wake of the storm. Highs will remain cool, with Fresno forecast to be in the upper 50s. Shaver Lake will see temperatures in the upper 40s, while Yosemite will be 30 degrees with a blustery breeze.
