Scattered showers and cooler temperatures are on tap for your Thursday in Northern Califronia. The main band of moisture that arrived last night is tracking North and winding down in our area for today. Showers will still impact the region, but are not expected to be heavy during the day. Temperatures have stayed very warm overnight. Valley areas are starting out in the high 40's to low 40's, and mountain areas are in the mid 30's to mid 40's this morning. Winds are expected to stay light today. High temperatures will end up in the mid 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, and in the mid 40's to low 50's in the mountains.
A more substantial band of moisture will track into Northern California late tonight, and will continue through the early portion of the day on Friday. Showers are not expected to be as strong by tomorrow night, and the region will dry out through the day on Saturday. Snow levels are mostly above 7000' but could dip to as low as 5000' on Saturday. Mountain travel impacts still look minimal this weekend. We will be a little warmer and mostly dry on Sunday. Showers will return on Monday night, and will strengthen on Tuesday. Tuesday's system is shaping up to be more impressive than what we have this week, and could potentially last into early Wednesday. Dry and mild conditions will then return for the middle to latter part of next week.
