Stronger winds, and increasing clouds are ahead for your Thursday forecast. Sustained winds will be between 10 to 20pmh out of the North, and gusts will be up to around 30mph. Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies are ahead for today, but the chance for showers will hold off until tonight. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's to low 50's in the valley, and mid 20's to mid 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the high 60's to low 70's for the valley, and mountain areas will be in the low 50's to low 60's.
Showers will arrive in the Northern Mountains tonight, and extend through the entire region through Friday. Snow levels will start out at around 5500 feet, but will slowly fall to around 3500 feet by Saturday morning. The potential for showers, and thunderstorms will be ahead for the valley on Friday, and Saturday. Dry weather will take hold of the north state on Sunday, but another chance for light precipitation will return to the area on Monday afternoon. That next system will only impact the region through Tuesday, before sunny skies and warmer temperatures return for next Wednesday. I hope everyone is ready for the wet and windy weather heading into the north state, and has a great Thursday!
