The core of this system is currently weakening and spinning overhead. On the satellite image below, you can see the edge of the clouds out west off the coast. A renegade shower could pop up in the next few hours, especially in the mountains, otherwise, the bulk of the heavy rain is gone. Patchy mist, drizzle and fog will persist through Friday morning.
Another potent cold front is headed this way for tomorrow. An isolated shower could develop ahead of this front on Friday afternoon, however, the best chances for rain will arrive Friday night (roughly 9 PM to 4 AM). Rain and isolated thunderstorms will overspread the area from the north.
Isolated showers will persist until midday Saturday, then we should be mostly dry by Saturday afternoon and evening.
Snow levels will range from 7,000 to 10,000 Friday evening, then rapidly drop to 4,000 to 5,000 Friday night. They could dip as low as 3,500 by Saturday morning.
Early estimates for snow:
Above 3,000: Dusting to 2"
Above 5,000: 3" to 8"
Above 7,000: 12" to 18"
