Light rain likely Saturday night into Sunday
- Snow or ice could impact travel in the higher terrain
There's is a strong likelihood of light rain overnight and into Sunday morning for the Taft area from a cold storm system expected to move through the area.
The storm isn't expected to drop a lot of precipitation but low snow levels could impact travel for people planning to drive south over the Grapevine or even over Grocer Grade on Sunday.
There's a 60 percent chance of rain for the Taft area Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Rain with some snow showers for elevations over 3500 feet is likely as the storm moves through.
That means the Grapevine and possibly even on Highway 166 south of Maricopa could be impacted by snow or ice, so drivers should use caution there, especially in the overnight and early morning hours.
