Be prepared for the potential for some light showers as you head out the door this morning, but we are expecting to dry out by this afternoon. Low pressure tracking through the Pacific Northwest will continue to drag moisture through our region this morning, but the potential for wet weather will diminish through the day. The latest models are showing dry weather returning by this afternoon for most of our region, with just a slight chance for some lingering light showers in the foothills and mountains. Temperatures are starting out much warmer than 24 hours ago. Valley and foothill areas are in the 40's to 50's this morning, and mountain areas are starting out in the 30's to 40's. Skies will be mostly cloudy to start the day, with clearing skies heading into this evening. Winds will mostly be out of the south, but we'll see a shift to north winds in the valley later this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to end up in the upper 50's to mid 60's in the valley, in the 50's to around 60 degrees in the foothills, and in the upper 40's to upper 50's in most mountain areas.

High pressure will be building into northern California for the remainder of your extended forecast, and will result in mostly dry and much warmer weather across our region. Morning fog will be the biggest travel concern late this week, and we may be dealing with areas of dense fog in the valley both Thursday and Friday mornings. There will also be a slight chance for some light showers brushing our far northern zones Friday evening, but the latest models are keeping wet weather to our north in Oregon. Valley temperatures will start out in the low to mid 40's and end up in the 60's to lower 70's from Thursday through the start of next week. Foothill areas can expect low temperatures in the 40's to lower 50's and high temperatures in the upper 50's to mid 60's from Thursday through Monday, and mountain areas can expect low temperatures in the 20's to 30's and high temperatures in the 50's to lower 60's during that same time. We'll likely see a modest dip in high temperatures from the early to middle portion of next week, but will continue to see well above average values. We'll also be staying dry for your extended forecast, without any decent shower chances looking likely through the end of next week.

As expected, we had much quieter weather around northern California on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine, much weaker wind, and a wide range of temperatures. Thursday will be similar, but much more active weather is coming.
