Wonderful Wednesday weather for northern California with a pleasant mix of high clouds, sunshine, and warmer than average highs. We'll cool off more tonight with fewer clouds, only to warm up further on Thursday. A weak trough of low pressure is approaching northeast California, but most of its energy will move over Nevada tonight and tomorrow, leading to only breezes for our area and continued warmer than average weather. We'll have fewer clouds and cooler lows Thursday morning, dropping to the 20s and 30s in the mountains with upper 30s and 40s for the valley and foothills. Thursday will be mostly sunny and breezy with highs ranging from the 50s and 60s in the mountains to the 60s and 70s in the foothills and valley.
High pressure will deliver more sun and a continued warming trend from Friday through Sunday. Highs will warm to well-above-average levels, and will be up to 15 degrees warmer than average by Sunday afternoon. An area of low pressure wants to drop southward over northern California next week, but at this time it appears to only bring breezes with no good chance of widespread rain. We may have a chance of rain 9-10 days from now and again 2 weeks from now, but only if the weather pattern doesn't change between now and then. Overnight lows will be a few degrees warmer than average through next week, while highs will range from the 60s in the mountains to the 70s and lower to mid 80s for the foothills and valley.
