Cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, showers, and a very decent chance of thunderstorms are all ahead for your Thursday forecast. Most of the region is cloudy but dry this morning, with thunderstorms developing along the Nevada/California border. Showers and unsettled conditions will return to most of the region throughout the afternoon. Thunderstorms could produce locally gusty winds, and the potential for hail. Winds will be out of the South to 10mph, but could become locally gusty around thunderstorm activity. Temperatures are starting out in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and in the low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 70's in the valley, and into the mid 50's to high 60's in higher elevations.
More showers, and thunderstorms will likely be ahead for your Friday forecast, with the potential for even more active weather ahead for Saturday. Temperatures will be slightly cooler for most areas on Friday. Most of the wet weather will shift to the East on Saturday, leaving the Sierra with the potential for wrap around showers. Skies will start to clear out on Sunday, and a warming trend will return to the region. Partly cloudy skies, and valley temperatures in the low 80's are expected by Monday. Mid 80's and sunny skies will be ahead for the middle of next week. I hope everyone is ready for more active weather ahead for the region today, and has a great Thursday!
