Mother Nature is giving travelers something to be thankful for on this holiday. Very mild weather is ahead for your Thanksgiving Day forecast. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's to low 50's in the valley, low to mid 30's in the Northern Sierra, and low 40's in the Northern Mountains. Fluctuating clouds are expected throughout the day, with mostly cloudy skies ahead for tonight. There will also be a chance of showers for tonight in the Northern Mountains.
Rain will spread through the north state for your Friday forecast. Rain could be in store for the northern zones of our region as early as the morning, but it will spread through most areas by late afternoon. Heavy rain is expected through your weekend forecast, and cooler temperatures will also be ahead. Weekend temperatures will dip into the low 50's. Snow levels are now expected to be a little higher than earlier projections indicated. Between 6 to 12 inches of snow will be possible above 6000 feet.
Another system will bring showers into the region for your Monday forecast, and that looks to linger into Wednesday morning. Temperatures will be around 5 degrees warmer than the weekend during that time. I hope everyone stays safe when traveling, and has a great Thanksgiving!!!
