The National Weather Service’s Hanford office is expecting a weekend storm system to bring light rain and and snow to the Central San Joaquin Valley area.
“A storm system that tracks from the Pacific Northwest into the Great Basin early this weekend will bring generally light precipitation to a portion of the central California interior, mainly from Fresno county northward Friday night and Saturday,” the Weather Service wrote on their Facebook page.
Places like Shaver Lake, Lodgepole, and Grant Grove could see a dusting of snow, expected to be less than an inch.
