The second wave of rain showers passed over northern California early this morning, and much quieter and cooler weather is in store late tonight and early tomorrow. Patchy morning fog is possible, but most will be south of our area. A small ridge of high pressure is now ushering out the latest disturbance which brought small amounts of rain to our area. We will rapidly lose our cloud cover tonight and temperatures will cool much more than previous mornings. Patchy fog will occur, but in general we'll have a mostly clear night. Lows will range from the 20s in the mountains to the 30s and 40s in the valley and foothills. Thursday will be a mostly sunny and warmer day, with highs ranging from the 50s to the upper 60s and lower 70s.
A small storm will push over Oregon on Friday, but all we can expect in northern California is more cloud cover and a brief cooling of our above average highs. Another ridge will rebuild over California on Saturday, leading to more sunshine and unseasonable warmth. A stronger area of low pressure, also called an inside slider due to its path over the Sierra toward southern California, will bring more breezes Sunday, stronger wind next Monday and Tuesday, and lingering breezes next Wednesday. Little to no rain or snow is expected for most of our area through the middle of next week, however. Lows will stay warmer than avearge, while highs will range from the 40s and 50s in the mountains to the 60s and 70s in the valley and the foothills.
