Bundle up before you head out the door this morning, but also make sure you'll be comfortable in the warmer conditions this afternoon. It's a chilly start to your Wednesday, with valley areas dipping into the 30's to 40's, and mountain areas falling into the 20's to 30's overnight. There will be potential for some frost and fog during your morning commute. The warming trend, and dry weather will continue for most of Northern California today. There will be a chance for some light showers sagging into Siskiyou County from Oregon through tonight, but the remainder of Northern California is expected to stay dry. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny across most areas today. Winds are expected to stay mostly light today. High temperatures will top out in the high 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, and in the 40's to 50's in the mountains later today.

The warming trend will continue, and even ramp up over the next several days. High pressure building into the West Coast will continue to leave Northern California dry, and warm. Temperatures will end up in the mid 60's in the valley on Thursday and will then top out in the high 60's to low 70's on Friday through Sunday. Mountain areas will mostly end up in the 50's during that time. Overnight low temperatures will continue to be chilly, with 30's projected for the next several mornings in the valley. Looks like we can expect high temperatures to dip back into the low to mid 60's for the start of next week, but dry weather will persist across Northern California through your entire 7 day forecast.
