Mostly clear skies, chilly morning temperatures, some areas of fog, and overall mild conditions are ahead for your Tuesday. Fog has not been much of a factor in the valley, but parts of Trinity County have had visibility down to around a quarter mile this morning. The lack of clouds, and light winds have allowed for much cooler temperatures to settle in overnight. Valley areas are starting out in the mid 30's to low 40's, and mountains areas have dipped into the mid 20's to low 40's this morning. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the high 50's to mid 60's in the valley, and mountain areas will be in the mid 40's to mid 50's later today. Winds will be out of the North to around 10mph. Clouds will begin to return towards the latter part of your Tuesday afternoon, with more blanketing the region tonight.
Cloudy skies will leave the region with slightly warmer temperatures for Wednesday morning. The warmest temperatures of the week are projected for Wednesday, with valley areas mostly climbing into the mid 60's. There will be a slight chance of a light shower passing through the Coastal Range into the Northern Mountains tomorrow, but it does not look likely. Clouds will continue to thicken early Thursday morning, and showers will make their way from North to South through the region by Thursday evening. Rain is expected to the region from Thursday to Friday, with lighter showers lingering into the weekend. Unfortunately, snow levels will be very high with this approaching system. Current projections keep the snow level at around 8000'. Snow levels could drop to as low as 3000' by Sunday evening, but moisture will be extremely limited by then. I hope everyone enjoys the warm and dry conditions ahead for the region today, and has a great Tuesday!
