Jul 8, 2015 10:50 AM by Cort Klopping

Slightly cooler temperatures and a better potential for active conditions are ahead for your Wednesday forecast. The National Weather Service out of Sacramento is issuing a Flash Flood Watch for the foothills and mountains of the north state from 1pm this afternoon until midnight. Scattered showers and a chance for thunderstorms will be ahead for the mountains today, and active conditions will become much more widespread towards the late afternoon and early evening. The potential for valley showers and thunderstorms will arrive later this afternoon as well, with the best chance for activity resting in the northern end of the valley.

Temperatures are starting out in the mid 60's to mid 70's in the valley this morning, and in the high 40's to mid 60's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the high 80's to low 90's in the valley, and into the high 70's to high 80's in the mountains. The potential for active conditions, and much cooler temperatures will linger in the region on Thursday. Valley temperatures are expected to top out in the high 70's to low 80's tomorrow. The active weather will head East on Friday, and a very modest warm up will be ahead for the weekend. Valley areas are only projected to climb into the low to mid 90's by Sunday. Please make sure you're very careful on the wet roads over the next couple of days, and have a wonderful Wednesday!
