Pleasant weather continues for your Thursday, but active weather will be returning for the end of your work week. Looks like today will be the best day to get out and run errands over the next several days. Mostly clear skies, and chilly temperatures are on tap for the start of your Thursday. Valley areas have dipped into the 30's to low 40's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the teens to 20's this morning. Winds are mostly light and out of the East this morning, and are expected to stay on the lighter side today. Skies will stay sunny to mostly sunny through this evening. Temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 60's in the valley this afternoon, and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains.
We'll be staying dry through Friday morning, but showers will be returning to Northern California during the day tomorrow. The latest models have showers returning to the Northern Mountains in the morning, and then spreading across the reminder of Northern California in the afternoon. Rain amounts do not look all that impressive, and snow levels will stay above 7000'. Temperatures will end up several degrees cooler from Friday through your weekend. Winds will become gusty out of the South on Friday evening. Gusts up to 50mph will be possible in portions of the Sierra. Valley areas are projected to top out in the mid 50's over the next several days. Showers will linger into Saturday, but we should get a lull in the wet weather on Saturday evening. The next round of rain and snow will return on Sunday, and is expected to be more substantial than the Friday system. Looks like snow impacts could be expected down to around 5000' and up to an inch of rain will be possible in the valley. Showers will persist into Monday, but should mostly taper off by Monday night. Another wet system will be ahead towards the end of next week.
