Posted: Apr 3, 2018 7:16 AM

Dry and warm weather will persist across Northern California today, but winds are not expected to be as strong as yesterday. Mostly clear skies and a cooler airmass are resulting in a cooler start to your Tuesday. Valley areas have dipped into the mid 40's to low 50's overnight, and into the teens to 20's in most mountain areas. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph this morning, but will shift to become out of the South to 10mph later today. Skies are mostly clear for the start of your Tuesday, but clouds are expected to fill into the Northern zones of the state this afternoon. Mountain areas will be partly to mostly cloudy, while valley areas range from mostly sunny to partly cloudy this afternoon. Temperatures will end up a few degrees warmer than yesterday. Valley area are projected to top out in the mid to high 70's, while mountain areas end up in the high 50's to high 60's this afternoon.

Clouds will continue to increase and spread tonight. Mostly cloudy skies are expected across most areas of Northern California on Wednesday, but temperatures will end up in the same range that we can expect for this afternoon. Winds will continue to be out of the South to around 10mph. Cooler temperatures will settle into our area on Thursday, and the potential for showers will increase through the day. Highs will only top out in the mid to high 60's in the valley on Thursday. Showers will more than likely arrive after noon on Thursday, and will spread through Northern California on Thursday night. Heavy and widespread rain is in the forecast for your Friday. The cooling trend will continue and result in valley areas topping out in the mid 60's (below average for this time of year) on Friday. Heavy rain and cooler temperatures are expected for Saturday. There will be a slight chance for thunderstorms in the valley and foothills. Snow levels will remain above pass levels through Saturday afternoon, but could dip to 4500' by Saturday night.

Some showers will continue to linger in the mountains into early Sunday morning, but valley areas will more than likely have a dry end to the weekend. Mountain areas will be mostly dry by Sunday afternoon. The break from the wet weather will be short. The next wet system is currently projected to return to our area on Monday night, and spread across the region for Tuesday of next week.
