Mostly sunny skies, and well above average temperatures are ahead for your Thursday. Valley locations are staring out in the low to mid 40's, and mountain locations have dipped into the mid 20's to mid 30's overnight. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 70's in the valley, and into the mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. Limited clouds will track across the region today, but mostly sunny skies will dominate the north state through this evening. Winds will only be up to around 10mph out of the North.
More clouds will filter into the north state tomorrow, and a chance for light showers will be ahead for the Northwest corner of the state tomorrow afternoon, and evening. The best potential for wet weather will be in the Northern Mountains, with the potential for showers to sag as far South as Red Bluff. Those showers will taper off before Saturday morning. Temperatures will be slightly cooler over the next couple of days, but will remain above average. Valley areas will dip into the mid 60's over the weekend, and will start out in the mid to high 60's next week. There will be another chance for showers quickly brushing the region on Sunday evening.
Dry and warmer conditions will be ahead for Tuesday, and Wednesday of next week. Temperatures will climb back into the low to mid 70's on those 2 days. Models are hinting at the return of more substantial wet weather towards the end of next week, but it's a little too early to project amounts. I hope everyone enjoys these above average temperatures ahead for today, and has a great Thursday!
