You can feel free to leave your umbrella at home today. Clearing skies, and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Wednesday. The showers from yesterday are now off to our East, and the clouds brushing through our region this morning are expected to fizzle out by this afternoon. Fog will be the one impact drivers face on the roads this morning. Visibility is limited in portions of the valley, and some higher elevations to the North of the valley this morning. The fog should taper off early to mid morning. Temperatures have dipped ito the 40's to 50's in the valley overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the 30's to 40's this morning. Winds are expected to be out of the North to around 10mph, and humidity will stay above 50 percent this afternoon. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid 60's in the valley, and in the 40's to mid 50's in the mountains later today.

We'll be staying dry for the day on Thursday, but showers will be returning on Thursday night. Wet weather will continue through the day Friday, but precipitation amounts will stay on the lighter side. We could see up to an inch of rain from Thursday night through Friday in some areas, and a couple inches of snow in the mountains. Mountain travel may be impacted, but snow totals don't look all that impressive with this system. We'll dry out late Friday into early Saturday, and stay dry through Saturday afternoon. Saturday will be your best bet for last minute Christmas shopping, as another wet system will return to our region on Saturday night and wet weather could persist through Christmas Day. The wet system arriving on Saturday is expected to pack a bit more of a punch, and mountain travel will become more impacted for the end of your weekend, and the start of next week. Please make sure to plan your holiday travel accordingly.

We began the new week with plenty of sunshine and heat around northern California, but more heat, more wind and more potential fire danger are ahead for our area.
