It's going to be a chilly start to your Wednesday morning, but we did avoid a hard freeze in the valley overnight. Scattered snow showers have lingered in some mountain areas overnight, but are already tapering off early today. Clearing skies and dry weather are projected for your Wednesday. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 30's in the valley overnight, and in the the teens to 20's in the mountains this morning. Skies are clear in the valley, and partly cloudy in the mountains for the start of your Wednesday. Sunny skies are expected to return to most areas by this afternoon. Winds will stay on the light side today, and humidity will bottom out at around 40 percent. High temperatures are projected to end up in the low 50's in the valley, and into the 30's to low 40's in the mountains this afternoon. Doesn't look like you'll be needing your umbrella, but a decent jacket is warrented this morning.
There is still a very decent potential for a hard freeze to settle into the valley tonight. Low temperatures are projected to dip into the mid 20's for lower elevations, with single digits to teens in some mountain areas. We're expecting to stay dry on Thursday, but some showers could pop up in areas of Shasta County to the North on Thursday evening. More widespread showers will then take hold of Northern California on Friday. Two separate wet systems will bring valley rain, and low elevation snow to Northern California through your weekend. It does not look like we have much of a chance for more snow in the valley, but foothill areas from upper Paradise and higher will likely have snow showers. Temperatures will start out in the mid 30's for the valley through the weekend, and top out in the high 40's to low 50's. A break from the wet weather is expected on Monday, but more showers will be possible by Tuesday of next week. Take advantage of the dry weather while it lasts!
