Some clouds, and slightly cooler temperatures are ahead for your Friday forecast. Partly cloudy skies have filtered into the north state overnight, and that has kept temperatures a little warmer than the last couple of mornings. There will be a very slight chance of showers passing into the Sierra this morning, but that will quickly subside after sunrise. Valley areas are starting out in the low to mid 60's this morning, and mountain areas are starting out in the low 40's to low 50's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the mid 80's for the valley, and high 70's to mid 80's in the higher elevations. Winds will be out of the South to 10mph today, and humidity values will be slightly higher than the last few days.
Temperatures will take a significant dip this weekend as low pressure tracks into the Pacific Northwest. There is a 30 to 40 percent chance of valley showers on Saturday, and a slightly higher chance for wet weather in the mountains. The chance for showers will subside on Sunday. Temperatures will only top out in the mid 70's for the valley this weekend.
High pressure will build back into the West Coast for the start of next week, and temperatures will return to the mid to high 80's by Tuesday. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny from Monday through Wednesday, before more clouds return to the region on Thursday. The next potential for wet weather will arrive on Friday, but some models are holding off on precipitation until Saturday. I hope everyone enjoys the cooler temperatures ahead for the region this weekend, has a fantastic Friday, and a wonderful weekend!
