Cloudy skies, the potential for showers, and slightly cooler temperatures are ahead for your Thursday. A thin band of showers tracked through the region overnight, and left the valley with a trace of rain. Now, a much more impressive band of moisture is tracking into the Northern Mountains, and is expected to mostly impact the Northwest areas of the north state today. There will be at least a slight chance for showers across the entire region today. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's for the valley, and mountain areas have dipped into the mid 20's to low 40's overnight. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the high 50's to low 60's in the valley, and into the high 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Winds will mostly be light, but South winds to 10mph are expected this afternoon.
A much more impressive swath of moisture is expected to arrive in the north state late tonight, and heavy precipitation will be ahead for tomorrow. This system is a warm one, and has the snow levels up at around 7500'. That snow level will fall to around 4500' by Friday night, but moisture will be more limited by then. Lighter showers will be possible across the region this weekend, but it does look likely that the majority of the wet weather will pass through to the East by Saturday afternoon. There will continue to be at least a slight chance for wet weather each of the next 7 days, but Monday looks like the least likely day. Partly to mostly sunny skies will be ahead for Monday, before thick clouds return to the region on Tuesday. I hope everyone is ready for the very wet conditions on the way to the north state, and has a great Thursday!
