Get ready for low visibility and slick roads as you make your way out the door this morning. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for the valley and will continue through 10am this morning. Visibility under a quarter mile will be possible in many areas today. The showers we saw over the weekend have now wrapped up and are moving off to the east. High pressure is building into northern California and will result in dry weather and clearing skies today. Temperatures are starting out in the 30's to 40's in the valley this morning, 30's in the foothills, and in the 20's to 30's in the mountains early today. Winds are mostly out of the north up to around 10mph, and the north winds have helped to keep much fog from deleloping in the northern zones of the valley. High temperatures will end up in the mid to high 50's in the valley this aftenroon, in the 40's to lower 50's in the foothills , and in the 30's to low 50's in the mountains.

We'll be staying dry with similar temperatures and increasing clouds on Tuesday. There will be a chance for some sprinkles close to the coast and Oregon border, but not much else. An area of low pressure will bring another chance for more widespread rain and snow into our forecast from Wednesday into Thursday. More than an inch of rain will be possible in the valley, and some mountain areas could be seeing upwards of a foot of snow between late Tuesday night and early Friday morning. Temperatures will be warmer for the overnight hours, but will not change much for your afternoons. Valley temperatures are projected to dip into the 30's to lower 40's overnight this week with high temperatures in the mid 50's. Foothill areas will dip into the 30's to 40's for the mornings, and will top out in the 40's to low 50's. Mountain areas can expect low temperatures in the teens to low 30's, and high tmeperatures in the upper 30's to lower 50's through the week.

We'll be dry in your Friday forecast, but models are bringing the potential for showers back into your forecast this weekend. The latest model data is showing the best chance for wet weather staying in our northern zones down into Shasta County but that is subject to change as we get closer to your weekend. The temperature trend is expected to stay mostly the same as the rest of this week through your weekend.
