Tonight will be mostly clear with valley lows in the low to middle 40s. Lows in the mountains will be in the 20s and 30s.
Sunday will start off mostly sunny and see increasing clouds through the day becoming partly to mostly cloudy. The coastal range and northern mountains will have some patchy morning fog in the valleys. Temperatures will still be warm with highs in the middle to upper 60s in the valley. Highs in the mountains will be in 50s and 60s. The coastal range and northern mountains see mostly cloudy conditions and showers arriving in the afternoon and evening.
The start of the work week will bring more cloud cover and cooler temperatures to the North State. A few scattered showers could be possible Monday and Tuesday in the northern end of the valley but most of the shower activity will stay confined to the mountains.
Skies will clear up briefly on Wednesday before clouds return on Thursday. Significant changes come to the North State on Friday and the weekend. The forecast will be much cooler and wetter as the ridge of high pressure moves to the east allowing for more active weather to move in. Highs will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s in the valley with widespread showers possible. Snow levels will still stay pretty high though.
