Bundle up before you head out the door this morning, and make sure to give yourself some extra time to scrape your windshield before you hit the road. A Freeze Warning is in effect until 9am in the valley. Valley areas are starting out in the high 20's to mid 30's this morning, and mountain areas have dipped into the teens to 20's overnight. Skies are clear for the start of your Monday, and will stay mostly sunny this afternoon. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph today. Temperatures will be slow to warm, and are not expected to warm all that much. Valley areas will end up in the low to mid 50's this afternoon, and mountain areas will end up in the high 30's to mid 40's. More clouds will spread across our region tonight, and showers won't be far behind.

Looks like we can expect some showers to return to Northern California overnight, but moisture will be very limited with the next system. Projections are showing less than a half an inch of precipitation projected for this week. Most of the showers are expected to be in the mountains, with just some sprinkles in the valley. Snow levels will be the lowest we've seen this season, and could dip to as low as 2500'. Areas like upper Paradise, and Magalia could see their first snow of the season either early Tuesday morning, or Tuesday night. Temperatures will not chance much through the week, with low to mid 50's projected for the next 3 days in the valley. Mid to high 50's will return to the valley on Thursday and will last through the weekend. Looks like the potential for showers will mostly wrap up on Wednesday night, and we'll end up dry for the end of the week. Another chance for showers will be returning towards the start of next week.

December began on a beautiful note for northern California with plentiful sunshine, seasonably cool lows and warmer than average highs. Much of wednesday will be similar to today, but clouds will stream into our sky late in the day.
