Active weather is returning to the north state in your Friday forecast. Scattered showers have already started to develop in the Northwest corner of the state, but most areas will have the active conditions return this afternoon. Rain, and snow will be ahead for the mountains through Saturday evening. Snow levels will start out at around 6000 feet, but will fall to around 3500 feet by Saturday morning. Valley areas can expect scattered showers, and the potential for thunderstorms from this afternoon through Saturday evening. Thunderstorms could produce areas of hail, and there will be the potential for funnel cloud development later on today.
Temperatures are starting out in the low to mid 40's for the valley, mid to high 40's in the Northern Mountains, and mid to high 20's in the Sierra/Cascades. Afternoon high temperatures will only climb into the low 60's for the valley, and into the mid 40's to mid 50's for the mountains. Winds will be out of the West to around 10 to 20mph this afternoon.
Sunny skies, and slightly warmer temperatures will return to the region on Sunday. The next potential for light showers will arrive later in the day on Monday, and last through Tuesday. A dry, and warmer trend will arrive on Wednesday, and last through the end of next week. I hope everyone stays safe in the active weather over the next couple of days, and has a fantastic Friday!
