Quieter weather for northern California on Tuesday with a lot more sunshine and much weaker wind. Another storm is approaching the West Coast at this time. Valley rain and mountain snow will return to our area on Wednesday. Tonight will be a fairly quiet night for northern California with some high clouds approaching from the Pacific in advance of our next storm. Valley fog is possible, but won't be widespread. Overnight lows will range from the 20s in the mountains to the 30s and lower 40s in the valley and foothills. We will have plenty of clouds Wednesday with most of the rain and snow falling from late morning through early afternoon. Highs will be cooler, ranging from the 30s and 40s in the mountains to the 50s in the valley.
Once our Wednesday storm departs, we can expect a quieter weather day on Thursday, but we will have more clouds Thursday than we had on Tuesday. Another storm will move toward northern California late Thursday and Friday, bringing yet another chance for valley rain, mountain snow and gusty wind. This weekend looks much quieter for the region as a ridge of high pressure will bring more sunshine and a modest warming trend. Another storm will approach the West Coast early next week, but most of it will miss northern California, so only spotty showers are in the forecast. Lows will be seasonably chilly for all areas, but warmer with the clouds. Daytime highs will range from the 40s to the 50s and lower 60s at times.
