Very chilly conditions have settled into the north state overnight, and patchy frost has developed across most of the region. Light scattered rain and snow showers will be possible for the far northern zones of the state, but precipitation will be very limited today. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 30's in the valley overnight, and into the high teens to mid 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will top out in the low to mid 50's in the valley, and in the low 30's to mid 40's in the higher elevations. Winds will be out of the Northwest from 10 to 15mph with gusts up to 25mph in the mid valley.
Dry and cold conditions will persist through the middle of the week with mostly clear skies on Tuesday, and partly to mostly cloudy skies on Wednesday. There will be a chance of showers returning to the northern zones of the state on Thursday and Friday, but a much better chance for widespread precipitation will return to the region on Saturday. Models are currently split on the timing of the next wet weather. Areas as far South as the northern end of the valley could get wet weather for Thursday and Friday. I hope everyone stays warm on this cold morning, and has a marvelous Monday!
