Cloudy skies, and chilly temperatures are ahead for those heading out the door this morning. Rain and snow will return to the region this afternoon. Temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 30's in the valley overnight, and into the teens to low 30's in the mountains. Temperatures will only climb into the high 40's to mid 50's in the valley this afternoon, and into the mid 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. There will be a chance of some rain and snow showers before noon in the Northern Mountains, but the majority of the rain is expected to arrive this afternoon, and last into tonight. Snow levels are projected to stay at around 2000 feet in the Northern Mountains and Shasta County, and at around 3000 feet in the Sierra/Cascades.
Showers will taper off overnight tonight, and dry conditions will be ahead for the end of your work week. There will also be a nice warming trend arriving across the region over the next several days. Temperatures will climb back into the high 50's to low 60's in the valley by Friday, and into the high 60's to mid 70's on Super Bowl Sunday. There will be a slight chance for showers in the far northern zones of the state on Saturday evening, but the impacts do not look significant at this time.
The warm and dry weather will continue through the start of next week. I hope everyone is ready for the rain and low snow heading through the region today, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
