Dry and warmer weather is ahead for Northern California! We're starting out chilly across our region this morning. You may want to grab a jacket on your way out the door early today, but you won't be needing any extra layers this afternoon. Valley areas have dipped into the 30's to low 40's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the teens to 20's this morning. Skies are sunny to mostly sunny for the start of your Thursday, but partly cloudy skies will return for your afternoon. Winds will stay out of the North to around 15mph this morning, but should become lighter through the day. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid to high 60's in the valley this afternoon, and in the high 40's to low 60's in the mountains later today.
Clouds will clear out of our region on Friday and sunny skies will return for your Friday afternoon. Temperatures will end up in the high 60's to low 70's in the valley, and in the 50's to low 60's in the mountains on Friday afternoon. The warming trend will continue into the weekend. High temperatures will end up in the low to mid 70's in the valley on Saturday and in the mid 70's on Sunday and Monday. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny through the weekend. All around, it looks like a great weekend to get outside.
We're staying warm and dry for the start of next week, but changes are ahead for the middle of next week. Clouds will return to the region on Tuesday, and high temperatures will fall back into the mid to high 60s in the valley. The chance for showers will be returning on Wednesday, and high temperatures will dip into the low 60's for valley areas. Showers are currently projected to continue into Thursday of next week, but dry weather will likely return by next Friday.
