Mostly dry today, but heavy rain will be returning in your extended forecast.

Looks like most of the rain and snow has diminished across Northern California overnight, but you may want to keep that umbrella handy today. There will be potential for some isolated showers today, with the best change in the Northern end of the valley. Areas from Red Bluff to Mount Shasta will be the most likely locations for showers to pop up, but we can't rule out some isolated showers elsewhere. Fog has developed in portions of Northern California overnight, and has limited visibility down to around a mile in some areas. The slick roads and poor visibility will both be a concern for commuters. Please give yourself extra time to get to where you're going today. Temperatures have dipped into the 40's to 50's in the valley this morning, and into the 30's to 40's in the mountains. Winds are expected to stay light today, but could get up to around 10mph out of the East. High temperatures will top out in the high 50's to low 60's in the valley this afternoon, and in the mid 40's to low 50's in the mountains later today.

We'll be mostly dry for your Friday forecast, but showers will be returning on Friday night. Precipitation looks to be very modest, and will wrap up by early Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will dip back into the mid 50's for the valley through your weekend. Looks like we'll be dry from Saturday evening through Sunday morning, but another wet system will brush across Northern California from Sunday into Monday. A much more robust wet system will then take hold of our region from Tuesday through Wednesday. Heavy rain is expected with that system, and there will be potential for flooding and debris flows for the middle to latter part of next week. Another very potent system is then expected to take hold of our area on Thursday and last into Friday. Make sure you take advantage of the dry weather or lighter showers while they last, because it looks like we're in for some very wet weather next week.
