Dry and Warmer for Christmas?

A Pacific storm system moving into the coast won't offer Northern California much moisture. Christmas Day looking sunny and very warm!

We've been VERY dry through late Fall and so far that has continued into Winter. The forecast for the final days of 2017 is looking like we'll see more of the same. Temperatures throughout the past few days have sat a bit cooler, with more of the seasonal 50° high temperatures for the Valley and 30s/40s in the higher elevations.

More clouds pushed in for Saturday ahead of an approaching storm system, and right now it looks like that will be really all this storm will offer up. There may be some light rain/snow activity around Siskiyou and Modoc County, but that's about it. Valley should just see mostly cloudy skies and cooler temps.

As Christmas morning rolls around, we'll see the return of the dry weather, but also much warmer weather. Valley temps push back into the 60s, with Mountains warming into the 40s/50s. Right now it appears that we'll cap off 2017 on a very dry and warm note, looks like that will continue into the New Year as well.
