Foggy conditions have returned to several areas of the north state overnight, with the densest fog developing in Redding. Visibility in Redding has dropped to around a half a mile this morning, but is not as dense throughout the rest of the valley. Areas of Trinity County have also had dense fog develop overnight. The chance for wet conditions across the north state have diminished overnight, and most of the moisture heading in from the Pacific is now heading to the North.
Temperatures fell into the mid 40's overnight in the valley, into the high 40's to low 50's in the foothills, and mid 30's to high 40's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb back into the mid 60's for the valley/foothills, and mid 50's to low 60's in the mountains. Winds will be light, but are expected to strengthen to around 10mph out of the South.
The next chance for showers will arrive on Wednesday night, and showers will strengthen throughout the day on Thursday. Friday through Sunday will be very wet, with more than 3 inches of rain possible in the valley from this next wet event. Snow levels will remain relatively high, and will be at or above pass levels during that time. I hope everyone keeps that umbrella handy for this big change of pace on the way, and has a great Tuesday!
