We had mostly sunny skies and mostly dry weather across northern California today, but scattered showers will be returning to areas closest to the coast and the Oregon border tonight. Temperatures topped out in the 50's to low 60's in the valley, and in the mid 40's to mid 50's in the mountains and foothills. Winds have been out of the south to around 15mph.
Wet weather will become more widespread through your weekend, but showers are expected to be scattered and light. The first wet system will approach the north state tonight, but widespread showers are expected to hold off until mid to late in the day on Saturday. The second wet system will be on the way for Sunday and will bring slightly higher precipitation amounts to northern California but is still not expected to pack much of a wet punch. Mountain areas are expected to see the majority of the wet weather. Snow levels will start out between 3000' to 4000', but will climb into the 4000' to 5000' range by Saturday afternoon. Snow levels are expected to stay in that same range on Sunday. Up to 4 inches of snow is expected in areas above 4500'. Valley areas are mostly projected to get up to around a quarter of an inch of rain this weekend, but the far northern portion of the valley may see up to around a half an inch of rain. Temperatures will start out in the 40's in the valley on Saturday and will end up in the mid 50's. Mountain areas will start out in the 20's on Saturday and will end up in the 40's. Low and high tempretares are both expected to be slightly warmer on Sunday.
The latest models are showing mostly dry weather and slightly warmer temperatures ahead for your Monday. The best chance for showers will be in areas closest to the Oregon border, with the chance for showers becoming much lower heading to the south. Valley areas will end up back in the mid 60's on Monday afternoon, while mountain areas return to the high 40's to mid 50's. The warming trend is expected to continue through Wednesday, when valley areas top out in the mid 70's. Warm and mostly dry weather is currently projected to persist through the end of next week.
