Big-time rain on way, snow at higher elevations

A series of storms are approaching the central Sierra this week, with the National Weather Service saying the wet pattern will last through Sunday, Dec. 2. Snow levels are expected to remain near or above 7,500 ft.--negative news for skiers, however.

The NWS says Wednesday's precipitation will be "short lived."

"A more significant set of storms is shaping up for Thursday night through the weekend," according to NWS forecasters based at Hanford, Calif.

"Heavy rains will cause rises in rivers and streams but flooding is not expected at this time," the report notes.
