Staying dry today, but wet weather returns this week

Wet weather is on the way this week.

Posted: Nov 19, 2018 6:37 AM

Big changes are on the way in your forecast this week, but it's going to be more of the same for your through Tuesday afternoon. Winds are expected to stay on the lighter side today, and temperatures will be dependent on how much smoke is covering your area. Looks like we can expect much cooler temperatures in areas closer to the Camp Fire, and above average temperatures ahead for the Northern end of the valley. Temperatures are starting out in the 30's to low 40's in the valley this morning, and mountain areas are in the teens to 20's as we start this Monday. Winds will be out of the North to around 10mph today, and could still gust up to around 15mph in the canyons around the Camp Fire. Unhealthy air quality will likely be an issue until the rain moves in on Wednesday. Visibility will also be impacted by the smoke today, and could limit the air attack on by Cal Fire. High temperatures will range from the low 60's to low 70's in the valley, and in the mid 50's to low 60's in the mountains this afternoon.

Not much is changing on Tuesday, but showers will return to the Coast overnight into Wednesday. Most, if not all, of Northern California will get showers by Wednesday afternoon. We could see upwards of an inch of rain in portions of the valley by Wednesday night. Higher elevations will likely see amounts higher than the valley. The potential for mud slides and snow will be an issue for drivers. Snow will likely be down to around 5000' to 5500' on Wednesday night. The first round of showers will wrap up on Thursday, and the next system will arrive Thursday evening. Temperatures will become cooler for the end of the week, and will likely top out in the mid to high 50's in the valley. Rain will be likely through Saturday, and amounts are hard to predict at the moment. Some models are showing up to 5 inches of precipitation in the higher elevations, with around 2 to 3 inches possible in the valley. Snow will more than likely be a big impact on anyone traveling through mountain areas late this week through the weekend. Air quality should also improve with the onset of rain.

Monday was almost as hot as Sunday for most of northern California as a ridge of high pressure controlled our weather. A cooling trend is coming, but it will only cool to seasonable levels in the short term.
