Energy from the Pacific Ocean will bring a less-than-ideal Sunday to California, with coastal rain and mountain snow expected. It will be a cooler, cloudy weekend with the potential for moderate snow accumulation above 6,000 feet (6-12"). This could help boost spring skiing as a few resorts in California stay open through the month's end. Winter weather advisories are in effect for the mountains to account for the springtime snow!

Rain will be highest near the Sierra foothills, the Central Coast, and Central Valley. Expect 1-3", with the potential for flooding from San Francisco down the coast to Oxnard and around the Southern California coastline on Sunday.

Coastal and valley rain continues through most of the night, with snow for the higher elevations by late evening. Steady rain impacts the coast through Sunday before our frontal system pushes into Nevada, Utah, and northern Arizona to start the workweek. Some light snow accumulation is possible around the 4 Corners too by Monday night.

The good news: if you plan on attending the final day of Coachella, the forecast looks alright. Just some gusty winds to contend with for the final day of the weekend, which could lead to some blowing dust.

Stay with WeatherNation for the latest in the snow potential.
