Sunday some reached the 60s while others were in the mid-50s in the valley. We saw more sunshine today although it was not full sunshine for everyone. Those clear skies will lead to cold overnight low in the valley mid-30s again. Patchy fog will also be possible in the valley overnight and into Monday morning.
Monday, the first official day of winter, will be sunny before clouds move in after sunset. Highs will mostly be in the 50s with only a few 60s in the valley.
Showers move in Monday night into Tuesday morning. They will be light and quick. The west valley will remain dry, the east valley along the Sierra foothills will recieve trace amounts of rain and the north valley should receive less that 0.10". The mountains will also see light rain to drizzle.
Snow levels will start high at 6,000 feet Monday afternoon. Once the rain starts the snow levels will slowly drop to 4,000 feet in the Sierra by Tuesday morning and all the way down to 2,000 feet for other mountain regions. This snow will only be an inch or 2 and most may only see flurries.
Tuesday will also be breezy, with a WIND ADVISORY issued for Modoc county. However, our whole region will see stronger winds on Thirsday which will make it fel cooler than it actually is.
Dry sunny weather sets in the rest of the day Tiuesday into Thursday morning. Highs in the upper-50s.
Thursday afternoon, which is Christmas Eve, sees increasing clouds and highs in the upper-50s.
Friday-Sunday will be cooler with highs in the mid-to-low 50s and mostly cloudy skies.
