Posted: Nov 19, 2020 6:08 AM

Some light rain and snow showers are lingering across our region this morning, but will taper off very early today. The northern end of the valley, Northern Mountains, and portions of Shasta, Modoc, and northern Lassen Counties will be the most likely areas for some lingering showers very early today. The potential for patchy fog development is also ahead for the early portoin of your Thursday, and may impact visibility for your morning commute. The partly to mostly cloudy skies this morning will then give way to mostly sunny to sunny skies for most of our region this afternoon. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's to low 50's in the valley, 30's to 40's in the foothills, and 20's to 30's in the mountains this morning. Winds will not be as strong and yesterday and will mostly be out of the north. North winds in the 10 to 15mph range are expected this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to end up in the low to mid 60's in the valley, in the mid 50's in the foothills, and in the 40's to lower 50's in the mountains this afternoon. All around, today looks to be mostly mild.

Skies will continue to clear tonight, and temperatures are projected to end up several degrees cooler for the start of your Friday. Valley areas will dip into the 30's to lower 40's over the next several night, and end up in the low to mid 60's in the afternoons through this weekend. Foothill areas will mostly dip into the 40's overnight and will top out in the 50's to lower 60's through this weekend, and mountain areas can expect low temperatures in the teens to 20's and high temperatures in the 40's to mid 50's through this upcoming weekend. Frost will likely become one of the bigger issues we face in our forecast over the next several days, so make sure you give yourself enough time to scrape your windshield before you head out on the roads. Models are hinting at clouds returning and a very slight chance for showers returning to the northern portoins of our region from Sunday evening through early Monday, although the bulk of the wet weather is projected to stay to our north. The trend of chilly overnight low temperatures, average to slightly above average daytime high temperatures, and mostly dry conditions is expected to continue through at least the start of next week.
