Cloudy skies, and the potential for light showers are ahead for your Wednesday. Showers have spread across the north state overnight, but have mostly tapered off early this morning. A couple hundredths of an inch of rain has been reported in the valley, while areas of the Northern Mountains have had closer to a third of an inch of rain overnight. There will continue to be a slight chance for showers across the entire region, but the most likely area that will continue to be wet will be Siskiyou and Trinity Counties. Clouds have helped trap in the heat overnight, and that has resulted in a much warmer start to your Wednesday. Valley areas have only dipped into the mid 40's overnight, and mountain areas have only dropped into the low 30's to low 40's. Afternoon high temperatures will be in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and into the low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph.
Big changes are in store for your Thursday forecast. Showers will mostly hold off until tomorrow afternoon for most of the north state, but winds will be a big factor throughout the day as well. Winds will be sustained from 20 to 30mph out of the South, and gusts will be up to around 45mph. Snowl levels will drop to around 5000 feet, and up to around a foot of snow will be possible over the higher peaks. Around 5 to 9 inches of snow will be possible down to pass levels. Showers will taper off on Friday morning, and winds will not be as strong. Most of Friday, and all of Saturday look to be dry before the next wet system arrives in the region on Sunday afternoon. Showers will then persist into your Monday forecast. I hope everyone is ready for the strong winds, and wet weather on the way, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
