UPDATE (National): Hurricane Michael has been steadily weakening since it moved inland this afternoon, but we're still talking winds at about 90+ miles per hour, as high as 7000 feet above ground level, some of them that strong at surface level.

Sustained winds have dropped below tropical-storm-force across the northern Gulf coast, so the Hurricane Warning has been discontinued for that area.

As it moves across southwestern Georgia it's now dropped to a bottom-tier Category 1 storm.

At about 8 o'clock eastern time, the eye of Michael top sustained winds of 90 mph was moving to the northeast at 17 mph.

Flooding is still occurring along the Florida Gulf Coast.

We'll see the storm center move back over the Atlantic by tomorrow night and into Friday, where we could see it become an intense, extratropical cyclone.

The low is forecast to be absorbed by another low pressure area over the eastern Atlantic by day 5.

Gale- to storm-force winds are expected over portions of the Mid-Atlantic coast as Michael exits the U.S. east coast and becomes post-tropical.

Non-tropical high wind watches, warnings, and advisories have been issued by local NWS offices for wind hazards in these areas north of Duck, North Carolina.

Chico, Calif.-- The North State is sandwiched between a ridge of high pressure off the eastern Pacific and a deep trough of low pressure dropping into Norhtern California from the North.

So yes, we're seeing some clouds, and early morning fog this week.

We'll keep a chance for showers across the Sierra and even light snow over the Sonora, Ebbetts, and Carson passes.

Winds have let up in the southern areas but we're still seeing some across the North Valley around Shasta County.

By Thursday we see that low pressure drop south, and the high pressure building off to the Northwest.

That chance of snow continues at 8,000 feet and above.

We'll also see gusty winds pick up out of the Northeast, up to 30 mph in the northern and western areas of the Sacramento Valley, parts of the Coastal
Range, eastern foothills and the Sierra, dropping humidity levels.

By Friday, a trough of low pressure offshore moves down and over the areas Saturday, displacing the high pressure and creating locally breezy wind Friday, with normal temperatures today into Friday, then about 3 to 5 degrees
above normal forecast this weekend.

With lowered humidity and breezy to gusty conditions through next work week, we're looking at moderate to high fire danger across the region.
