Storm Tracker Forecast: Dry & warmer weather ahead

We'll be drying out and warming up through your weekend. Another round of wet weather is on the way for next week.

Posted: Mar 18, 2020 6:18 PM

The storm system that brought the rain, snow, and cooler temperatures into northern California is now heading off to the east and high pressure is building into the West Coast from the Pacific. Some scattered showers are expected to linger in the mountains this evening, but valley areas are expected to stay mostly dry.

Skies will start out partly cloudy on Thursday morning but will become mostly sunny for your afternoon. There will be a slight chance for scattered showers returning to mountain areas in the afternoon, but amounts will be light if that does occur. Temperatures will be chilly for the start of your Thursday. Valley and foothill areas are projected to start out in the low to mid 30's, while mountain areas will dip into the teens to 20's overnight. High temperatures will become warmer than what we've seen over the last few days, with temperatures climbing into the 60's in the valley, into the 50's in the foothills, and into the 40's to low 50's in most mountain areas.

We'll be staying dry on Friday and temperatures will end up back in the mid 60's in the valley, in the mid to high 50's in the foothills, and in the low to mid 50's in the mountains. The trend of dry and warmer weather will persist into your weekend. Low temperatures in the valley will dip into the high 30's to low 40's and high temperatures will top out in the low 70's. Mountain areas can expect mid to high 50's this weekend and foothill areas will end up in the 50's to 60's.

The next wet and cooler system is projected to drop down from the Gulf of Alaska towards northern California for the start of next week. We'll have a very good chance for valley showers and mountain snow. The current outlook brings snow levels down to around 3000' from Monday through Wednesday. Temperatures will dip back down into the high 50's to low 60's in the valley, into the high 40's to low 50's in the foothills, and into the 40's in the mountains.
