Cooler temperatures, cloudy skies, scattered showers, and the potential for more thunderstorms are all ahead for your Friday forecast. Showers have mostly been limited to the mountains overnight, but are slowly tracking into the valley early this morning. Thunderstorms have developed in a line from Nevada into Plumas and Lassen Counties already, and more unsettled conditions are expected for this afternoon. There will be a band of rain tracking through the region during the morning commute, and then a much more substantial band of moisture ahead for your Friday afternoon/evening. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 50's for the valley, and in the low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the high 60's to mid 70's in the valley, and in the high 50's to around 70 degrees in the mountains. Winds will be out of the South to 10mph, with gusts to 25mph for the northern end of the valley this afternoon.
More showers are expected across the region on Saturday, but the potential for wet weather diminishes on Saturday night. Temperatures will not change much, if at all, for Saturday, but warmer conditions will return to the region on Sunday. Mostly sunny skies, and a significant warming trend will return for the start of next week. Valley areas will climb back into the mid to high 80's by Wednesday, and then into the low 90's on Thursday. I hope everyone stays safe on the wet roads over the next couple of days, has a fantastic Friday, and a wonderful weekend.
