A parade of Pacific storms far from over.

The one-two punch of the past 24 hours into today is reaching a climax now with heavy rain moving into northern California, and it's bringing the first really heavy snow of the season to the Sierra. However, it will fade pretty quickly tonight as this upper-level trough moves inland. Why? The next storm will be knocking on the door of the Northwest by tomorrow, spreading more heavy rain and mountain snow inland during the afternoon and at night.

This system will taper to showers Sunday, only in time for still another storm to take aim at the region Sunday night and Monday. While the core of that storm is more aimed at British Columbia, it will nevertheless rain in much of Washington and western Oregon, with little for California.
