Mostly cloudy skies, patchy fog, and some showers are ahead for your Monday morning. Temperatures have only dipped into the high 40's to low 50's in the valley, and into the mid 30's to low 40's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to be in the high 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, and in the mid 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Showers will mostly be limited to the far northern zones of the state closest to the Oregon border. Most showers will pass through the Northern Mountains into Shasta County and then fizzle out in the Cascades this afternoon. Fog has left visibility across the region between 1 to 2 miles for most areas. Winds will be out of the Southeast to 10mph today, with gusts up to 30mph for the Sierra and Foothills.
Dry weather will be ahead for Tuesday, but the break from showers will not last very long. The next wet system will arrive in the north state on Wednesday morning, and will last through Friday morning. 1-2 inches of rain will be possible in the valley, and mountain areas could get between 3-6 inches of rain. Up to a foot of snow will be possible down to 6000 feet, and 2 to 3 feet of snow will be possible over higher peaks. Winds will be a major factor with the next system heading through. Gusts could top 30mph out of the South in the valley, and mountain areas could have gusts up to 50mph. Dry weather will then take hold for most of Friday, before the next chance for rain arrives on Saturday. I hope everyone drives safe on the foggy and wet roads, and has a marvelous Monday!
