Grab a jacket before you head out the door but also make sure you're dressed for the warmer temperatures returning for this afternoon. We're several degrees cooler than 24 hours ago across Northern California. Valley areas have dipped into the 40's to low 50's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the 20's to 30's this morning. A Frost Advisory is in place for the Northern Mountains through 9am, and a Freeze Warning is in place for the Eastern slopes of the Sierra through that same time. An extra layer is recommended this morning. Skies will be clear and mostly sunny today. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph, but we could see a shift to South winds to 10mph in the North valley this afternoon. High temperatures will end up around 5 degrees warmer than yesterday. Valley areas will top out in the high 70's to low 80's this afternoon, and mountain areas will end up in the 60's to 70's later today.
Dry weather, sunny to mostly sunny skies, and a decent warming trend will be ahead for the rest of your work week. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 80's in the valley on Thursday, and will then climb back into the mid to high 80's on Friday and Saturday. We'll be staying dry through Saturday. The potential for mainly mountain and foothill showers will return to our region on Sunday and temperatures will drop back into the low 80's in the valley on Sunday. There will be a slight chance for some valley showers for the latter part of your weekend and the start of next week, but amounts aren't expected to be impressive. The potential for showers will continue in the mountains through Tuesday and temperatures will stay in the high 70's to low 80's in the valley for the start of next week. Another warming trend will be possible towards the end of next week's forecast.
