Warmer temperatures, more clouds, and the potential for showers in the far northern zones of the state are all ahead for your Thursday. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 40's overnight in the valley, and into the mid 20's to mid 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb back into the mid to high 60's in the valley, and into the low 50's to low 60's in the higher elevations. Winds will be out of the North to around 10mph today. Showers will be possible close to the Oregon border down to around Shasta County through this afternoon. Clouds will also fill into the northern zones of the state, and many areas will be partly to mostly cloudy this afternoon. The mid valley, and surrounding areas will stay mostly sunny today.
Dry, and warmer conditions are ahead for the entire north state on Friday as the ridge of high pressure builds into the Southwest. Valley areas will climb into the low 70's tomorrow, and will stay above average through the weekend. Winds will also be much stronger on Friday, and are projected to gust up to around 25mph out of the North.
A winter storm system will arrive in the region on Monday afternoon, and will spread across the north state by Tuesday. Widespread wet weather, and much cooler temperatures will be ahead for Tuesday through at least Thursday. Next week's storm system could have major impacts on those traveling for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I hope everyone enjoys the warmer temperatures ahead for the end of this week, and has a great Thursday!
