A subtle increase in clouds, and slightly cooler temperatures are ahead for your Thursday. Thin clouds are tracking North into the region early this morning, and are expected to slowly increase over the next 12 hours. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 50's in the valley this morning, and in the mid 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. Winds will be up to around 10mph out of the Northwest this morning, but will shift to become out of the South this afternoon.
Mostly cloudy skies, much cooler temperatures, and a slight potential for showers will be ahead for your Friday. Valley temperatures are projected to top out in the low to mid 70's on Friday afternoon, and mountain areas will mostly climb into the 60's. If showers occur, they will more than likely be limited to the Sierra on Friday. A much better chance for widespread showers will return to the region on Saturday. High temperatures are only projected to be in the mid 60's for both Saturday and Sunday. Valley areas are projected to get between .25' to .50' of rain over the next 4 days, while mountain areas can expect between 1' to 2' of rain during that same time frame.
The potential for showers will linger through the middle of next week, and temperatures are expected to stay below average through your extended forecast. I hope everyone enjoys the cooling trend ahead for the region, and has a great Thursday!
