Warmer temperatures, and mostly mild conditions are ahead for your Tuesday across Northern California. Clouds are increasing this morning, and partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected today. Temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 30's in the valley overnight, and into the teens and 20's in the mountains. Winds will be up to 10mph out of the Northwest this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 60's in the valley later today, and mountain areas will end up in the mid to high 50's for most cities. Overall, today will be warm and mild across Northern California.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler in Northern zones of our area tomorrow, but are actually expected to be slightly warmer in mid valley areas. Valley locations will still top out in the mid to high 60's on Wednesday. Showers will approach the Northwest coast of California on Wednesday afternoon, and then is expected to spread across our entire region on Wednesday night. The heaviest, and most widespread precipitation is expected to occur from Wednesday evening through early Thursday morning. The majority of the showers after that point are expected to stay closer to the Northern Mountains. This is going to be a much warmer wet system, and snow levels are projected to stay at or above 5000'. Up to around 6" of snow looks possible in higher elevations. Temperatures will end up back in the low 60's for the valley late week, and in the 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Similar temperatures will continue through the end of your 7 day forecast.

The next more widespread chance for showers will return to the region on Saturday evening, and will last through Monday. Snow levels will more than likely stay at or above 4000' this weekend. Wet weather will be possible from Saturday night through Monday. More wet disturbances are possible moving forward in your long range extended forecast next week.
