Tuesday was another beautiful day for northern California as a cold front began to bear down on the West Coast. We can expect increasing clouds late tonight, stronger breezes, and a chance for mountain rain and snow showers. The evening will begin fairly clear with more clouds overnight and light rain and snow showers falling mainly over the mountains late tonight through early Wednesday. Overnight lows won't be quite as cold due to the clouds and breezes, ranging from the 20s and lower 30s in the mountains to the 30s and lower 40s in the valley and foothills. Wednesday will be an unsettled day with gusty wind at times and lingering mountain showers. Highs will range from the 40s in the mountains to the 50s in the valley.
Thanksgiving Day looks to be a pretty and pleasant day for northern California, however moderate to strong breezes will continue from time to time. A ridge of high pressure will be in control of our weather late Thursday through Saturday. Another trough of low pressure will move over the Pacific Northwest on Sunday and through the region early next week. We can expect increasing clouds and stronger breezes next Monday and Tuesday, but our chances for rain and snow through the end of November and beginning are slim and none, and Slim just walked out the door. Highs will be slightly warmer than average through December 1st, ranging from the 40s in the mountains to the 50s and lower 60s in the valley and foothills.
