Mostly sunny skies, below average temperatures, and breezy North winds are ahead for your Wednesday. Temperatures are starting out very chilly across the north state this morning. Valley areas have dipped into the high 30's to mid 40's this morning, and higher elevations have dipped into the low 20's to low 30's. High temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 60's in the valley, and into the mid 40's to high 50's in the mountains. Skies are starting out partly cloudy, but will become mostly sunny by this afternoon. Winds will be out of the North to 15mph across the entire north state, and valley areas could have gusts up to around 25mph.
Cloudy skies will return to the region tonight, and the potential for showers will arrive in the far northern zones of the state tomorrow. Showers will be limited to higher elevations on Thursday. Skies will then clear out on Friday, as high pressure rebuilds into the West Coast. That will leave the north state with a slight warm up for Friday, and Saturday. Clouds will then increase across the region on Saturday night, and the potential for more showers will return to the entire region on Sunday. Temperatures will be much cooler on Sunday than what is expected on Saturday. Snow levels will start out at around 7000 feet on Sunday, but will fall to around 4500 feet by Monday morning. The potential for mountain snow showers, and valley thunderstorms will be ahead for the upcoming Monday. Dry and sunny conditions will return for next Tuesday, but temperatures will continue to trend below average. I hope everyone stays warm in the chilly temperatures this morning, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
