More showers are on the way to Northern California today, but the wet weather will more than likely be limited to the far Northern zones of the state. Showers have stayed in the Northern Mountains overnight, but will spread to the East through the day. Areas from Tehama County to the North have the best chance for precipitation, while areas of Glenn County and Butte County are less likely to have showers today. Snow levels will stay above 4500', and moisture will be fairly limited. Up to a half an inch of precipitation will be possible around Mount Shasta, but the rest of our region will likely get less than 2 tenths of an inch. Temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 40's in the valley overnight, and mountain areas have dipped into the 20's to 30's this morning. Winds will be out of the Southeast to around 15mph this afternoon. High temperatures will stay very warm, with most of the valley expected to climb into the mid to high 60's this afternoon, and mountain areas ending up in the mid 40's to mid 50's later today.
Another chance for showers will be ahead for your Saturday, but does not look impressive. The mountains will have the best chance for wet weather this weekend, but we can't rule out some light showers in the valley through Saturday night. Sunday will be dry across Northern California, and temperatures will stay warm this weekend. Valley areas will be in the mid to high 60's for Saturday and Sunday. Dry and even warmer weather is expected on Monday. Some cities in the valley may climb into the low 70's on Monday afternoon.
Heavier rain and snow will return to Northern California on Tuesday, and the potential for more wet weather will continue through Friday. Snow levels are projected to be down to 6000' on Tuesday, down to 5000' on Wednesday, and then down to 4000' on Thursday into Friday. Temperatures will become much cooler towards the middle of next week. High temperatures in the valley will end up in the mid 50's from Wednesday through Friday. Keep the umbrella handy! Looks like you'll be needing it for the better part of next week.
