Patchy fog has developed across the valley overnight, but stronger winds are limiting limiting the impact on your visibility this morning. Many valley areas were reporting visibility down to around a quarter to a half a mile, but that has quickly rebounded to more than a mile of visibility over the last few hours. Winds are projected to be up to 15mph out of the North, with gusts up to 25mph in the valley. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's to low 50's in the valley, low 40's in the foothills, and high 20's to high 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will end up in the high 60's to low 70's for the valley, and mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. After some foggy and overcast conditions this morning, mostly sunny skies will return for the afternoon.
Temperatures will drop by a couple of degrees over the weekend, and winds will pick up out of the North. Some clouds will make their way through the region, but most of the north state will continue to be dry. There will be a chance of rain and snow showers returning to the Northern Sierra Saturday night into Sunday morning. Temperatures will stay between 5 to 10 degrees above average through your extended forecast, but there will be a chance for wet weather returning to the entire region at the end of next week. I hope everyone stays safe on the slick roads this morning, and has a fantastic Friday!
