Cool, Sunny & Breezy Through Christmas

Be careful on the mountain roads, but we should be clear of any new rain or snow for the rest of the holiday.

Posted: Dec 25, 2018 12:32 PM

Upper low continues to drop southward with just a few showers lingering over the northern Sierra through the morning hours.

Most of Christmas day will be dry for most areas.

We're still seeing a Winter Storm Warning for the northern Sierra due to current road restrictions but will likely be able to drop it on schedule if showers continue to diminish.

Northerly flow and building pressure will bring breezy north winds today.

Clearing skies will allow for warming today with daytime highs climbing to above normal.

The breezy north winds and building upper ridge will likely minimize any valley fog development tonight.

A shortwave trough dropping through the Pacific Northwest on Wednesday will bring a slight threat of showers to the Shasta county mountains through Thursday morning.

The rest of the forecast area will see fair to partly cloudy skies with continued above normal high temperatures Wednesday.

High pressure builds again Thursday afternoon and Friday so dry conditions continue as do above normal daytime highs.

Breezy north winds return Thursday and Friday and again these winds should minimize night and morning valley fog threat.

Fair skies during the end of the week will allow for overnight lows in the valley to drop into the thirties.

By early Saturday morning, an amplified trough will be located across the Four Corners region with a ridge situated over California.

This trough continues to deepen through Sunday as another shortwave approaches the Pacific Northwest Saturday night.

This wave dives southeast across Northern California Sunday bringing slight chances for precipitation to the coastal mountains and southern Cascades through Sunday night.

For now, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day look to be dry.

As for temperatures for the weekend and early next week, highs appear to be near normal with low temperatures slightly below average in the low and mid 30s for the Valley.

Higher elevations may see low temperatures in the teens and low 20s.
