More wet weather is ahead for your Friday

Mountain showers are ahead for today, but we'll be drying out this weekend.

Posted: Oct 5, 2018 6:50 AM

Some changes are ahead for your Friday forecast, but the chance for wet weather will continue in the mountains this afternoon. Mostly clear skies have returned to Northern California overnight, and that has helped to result in a cooler start to the day. Valley areas have dipped into the mid 50's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the 30's to 40's this morning. A jacket is certainly recommended on your way out the door this morning. Skies are going to stay mostly clear for your morning, but clouds will return for your afternoon. There will be a good chance for showers in the Northern Mountains and the Northern Sierra this afternoon, but valley areas are expecting to stay dry. There will be a slight chance for some showers sagging into Redding, but that's about it for lower elevations today. Winds are going to stay out of the North to 10mph, and humidity will likely dip into the 25 to 40 percent range later today. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid to high 70's in the valley this afternoon, and in the 50's-60's. Showers will have the potential to linger in the mountains heading into your Saturday, but they will be light and scattered.

Sunny to mostly sunny skies, mostly dry weather, and slightly warmer temperatures are ahead for your weekend. There will be a slight chance for scattered showers to linger in the mountains on Saturday, but the amounts will not be impressive in the wet weather continues. The potential for showers will wrap up on Saturday afternoon, and we will be dry across the board for Northern California from Saturday evening through the end of your extended forecast. Gusty North winds will develop this weekend, and will dry out our area. North winds will be sustained up to 20mph, with gusts up to around 30mph. The stronger winds will result in higher fire danger returning. Valley areas are projected to climb back into the high 70's to low 80's this weekend, and will then end up in the low to mid 80's from the start to middle of next week. We are expecting to stay dry across Northern California through at least Wednesday of next week after showers diminish on Saturday.
