The system that gave us a cold & wet Christmas has moved south, off the coast of Southern California. This leaves us with sunny skies and warmer temperatures (highs in the mid-50s in the Valley and reaching near 40 in the mountains). Tonight will see very cold overnight lows nearing the freezing level in the Valley.

Friday & Saturday we'll have highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.Friday & Saturday will be almost carbon copies of what we see Thursday except for clouds moving in Saturday afternoon and morning frost on Saturday.

The next weather system moves in on Sunday bringing light, scattered showers to Northern California. Snow levels will be 4000-5000 feet in the Sierra but could drop lower in Siskiyou, Trinity, & Shasta counties.

The system leaves us quickly as we return to dry & sunny conditions on Monday. New Year's Eve (Tuesday) and New Year's Day (Wednesday) will remain dry, although you can expect some more clouds to move in on New Year's Day. Tuesday will be unusually warm for this time of year with highs getting near 60 in the Central Valley and highs likely exceeding 60 degrees in the North Valley. The temperatures begin to cool back down on Wednesday.
