Gusty winds blew rain almost sideways in the Tower District Monday
The quick-moving storm that brought rain to the Valley and new snow to the Sierra Monday will be gone by Tuesday, leaving sunny skies but cool temperatures in its wake.
Rain began falling in early afternoon Monday in downtown Fresno. The National Weather Service said a line of thunderstorms formed then as well from Coalinga to the foothills of Mariposa County.
Webcams at Huntington and Shaver lakes showed snow showers.
Tuesday’s high in Fresno will be 66, and much the same on Wednesday. By that evening, the next storm is set to arrive in the central San Joaquin Valley. It won’t be as wet and will quickly depart on Thursday, the NWS said.
