Much cooler temperatures, rain and snow showers, and the potential for afternoon thunderstorms are ahead for the north state today. Most of the precipitation is expected to stay in the higher elevations, but valley areas could get up to a quarter of an inch of rain today. Snow levels are ranging from 3500 to 4500 feet early this morning, and those levels do not look to change much throughout the day. The best potential for showers will be in areas closest to the Oregon border throughout the day. Temperatures are starting out in the low 40's to low 50's in the valley, and in the high 20's to high 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to be in the low to mid 60's for the valley, and in the mid 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Winds will be out of the South from 10 to 15mph.
Showers are expected to wind down tonight, and skies will become clear by Friday morning. Temperatures will climb back into the mid 70's on Friday afternoon in the valley, and into the 60's for most mountain locations. Even warmer conditions will be ahead for the weekend, with valley areas projected to climb into the mid to high 80's. The dry and warm conditions will continue through the start of next week. I hope everyone is ready for some wet weather to pass through the region today, and has a great Thursday!
