Be prepared for slick roads, and poor visibility on your way out the door this morning. Showers are ahead for the Northern portions of our region today, and fog has become an issue in parts of the valley again this morning. Visibility has dipped to around a mile in the Red Bluff area this morning, and that could persist through your morning commute if showers hold off until this afternoon. Showers are currently scattered along the Northwest corner of California this morning, but will spread through the Northern Mountains, Northern end of the valley, and then the Sierra through the day. The best chance for showers will be in the Northern Mountains, and areas from Shasta County to the North. We aren't expecting showers to be heavy today, but they will be enough to make roads slick through this afternoon. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 40's to low 50's in the valley overnight, and into the 30's to 40's in the mountains this morning. Winds will be out of the Southeast to around 15mph this afternoon, and humidity is expected to stay above 55 percent. High temperatures are projected to top out in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and into the mid to high 40's in the mountains this afternoon. Showers will become very light and scattered as they track into the Sierra this afternoon. We'll be drying out by late tonight.
Dry weather, sunny to mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures are expected for your Wednesday. Temperatures will dip into the low to mid 40's in the valley on Wednesday morning, and are projected to top out in the low to mid 60's. Wednesday looks like it might be one of the best days of the week to head out for some last minute holiday shopping. Cloudy skies, slightly cooler temperatures, and a slight potential for showers will be returning for your Thursday. Showers will be light as they track into the coast on Thursday evening, but could become slightly more substantial as they track through our region on Friday. We'll be drying out on Saturday, but another round of wet weather is on they way for your Sunday and Christmas Eve forecast. Temperatures will be in the mid to high 50's in the valley from Friday through Christmas Day. Looks like we may be drying out just in time for Christmas.
