Staying dry today, but more showers are ahead

Staying dry for your Wednesday, but the chance for showers will return on Thanksgiving.

Posted: Nov 22, 2017 6:49 AM

You'll be fine leaving the umbrella at home today, but fog is going to have a big impact on drivers this morning. A Dense Fog Advisory has been put in place for the entire valley, and isn't set to expire until 11am. Visibility has dipped to under a quarter mile for several cities early today, and some local areas have seen visibility drop to around zero. Drivers are urged to give themselves plenty of extra time to get to where you're going, give yourself extra space between other cars on the road, and to make sure their headlights are on.

Dry weather and clearing skies will be ahead once the fog clears.

Temperatures have dipped into the mid to high 40's in the valley overnight, and into the 30's to low 40's in the mountains. Fog has limited cooling in the valley, but hasn't been as much of a factor for mountain areas. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 60's to low 70's in the valley, while mountain areas end up in the low to mid 60's. Winds are expected to be light today.

Showers will return to the Coastal Range late tonight, and then to the Northern Mountains early Thanksgiving morning. A decent chance for showers will be ahead for Northern zones of the state including the Northern end of the valley tomorrow. Showers will become less likely to the South, and only a slight chance for light showers will be in store for the mid valley. Temperatures will end up in the mid to high 60's across the valley Thursday through Saturday. Mountain areas will end up in the mid 50's to low 60's on those days. Dry weather looks likely for Friday and Saturday.

Another round of wet weather, and cooler temperatures will return for your Sunday. Snow levels could dip to as low as 4000 feet by Monday morning. Showers will linger early in the day on Monday, but are expected to taper off on Monday night. Sunny skies return for Tuesday of next week.
