Forecasters hint at pattern change

National Weather Service forecasts say "a very strong winter jet" could send snow and rain towards Central California over the next two weeks.

"With a stronger jet there is the possibility that this semi-permanent ridging... may actually get undercut and allow for... some much-needed precipitation," a forecast from the agency's Hanford office said.

For the near term, "light mountain precipitation may be possible" late Saturday or early Sunday morning.

"Stay tuned," the forecast concludes.
