We had another warm day over Northern California with active conditions returning for your Friday afternoon. Temperatures mostly topped out in the mid to high 70's in the valley, in the mid to high 60's in the foothills, and in the 60's to 70's in higher elevations. Winds have been out of the South to around 15mph. Showers and thunderstorms returned to portions of our region late in the day and we'll have the potential for active weather lingering into your evening. Low pressure located in Southern California and another area of low pressure off the coast of our region have brought active weather back to our area today. We've been tracking thunderstorms in the upper foothills of Butte County into Plumas County with some modest hail being reported in Plumas County. Stronger thunderstorm activity has been observed in Trinity and Mendocino Counties, and hail has been reported in Mendocino County. Some showers from that active area have spilled into far Western Tehama, and Glenn Counties, and there will be a chance for some thunderstorm activity in those areas as well. Most of the active weather is expected to wrap up as the sun sets this evening.

Skies are expected to stay partly cloudy overnight, but will be mostly sunny on Saturday for the majority of Northern California as the low pressure moves off to our East. The exception will be in the Sierra, where we will continue to have partly cloudy skies and a chance for showers through your weekend. Another area of low pressure is expected to brush by to our North late Saturday into Sunday and that could potentially bring additional showers to areas closer to the Oregon and Nevada border as that swings through. We'll be mostly dry again on Sunday. Valley temperatures are expected to dip into the high 40's to low 50's and end up in the low to mid 70's in the afternoons this weekend. Mountain areas can expect low temperatures in the 30's to low 40's, and high temperatures in the 60's in the Sierra. Northern Mountain areas will still climb into the 60's to 70's for the afternoons. Foothill locations can expect Low temperatures in the upper 40's to low 50's and high temperatures in the low to mid 60's this weekend.

Low pressure moving into Northern California from the Eastern Pacific will bring a decent chance for light showers to our region on Monday. Temperatures on Monday will be similar to your weekend, but skies will be cloudy. High pressure off the coast of Southern California will bring mostly dry and warmer weather back to Northern California towards the middle of next week. Mostly dry and sunny conditions will return for your Tuesday and valley temperatures will end up back in the upper 70's to lower 80's through the middle of next week. Models are showing another area of low pressure heading through the Pacific Northwest on Saturday and that will bring a chance for showers to our region, with the best chance for wet weather in areas closeest to the Oregon border. Dry and warm weather continues through the end of next week.
