Fluctuating clouds, and mild conditions are ahead for your Wednesday forecast. Dense fog has developed in some areas of the valley overnight. Redding has had visibility down to a quarter mile for most of the morning, while Chico and Oroville have 1 to 3 miles of visibility. There has also been some fog developing in the Northern Mountains. Partly cloudy skies are ahead for the start of your Wednesday, but skies are expected to clear throughout the day.
Temperatures are starting out in the low to mid 40's for the valley/foothills, and mountain areas dipped into the high 20's to mid 40's overnight. Afternoon high temperatures will return to the mid 60's for the valley and foothills, while mountain areas will be in the mid 50's to low 60's. Winds will be out of the South to around 10mph.
Showers will arrive in the Northern Mountains tonight, and will spread throughout the entire region through tomorrow night. Heavy rain will be in store for Thursday night through Sunday, with more than 3 inches possible in the valley. Winds are also projected to pick up, and gusts to 35mph out of the South are expected by Friday. Temperatures will only climb into the mid 50's for the valley on Friday. There will be lighter showers lingering into your Monday forecast, but skies will start to clear out on Monday night. Mostly sunny skies are ahead by next Tuesday, and warmer temperatures will return to the region.
I hope everyone stays safe on the foggy roads this morning, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
