Get ready for more showers in our northern zones through Sunday afternoon and another round of dense for in the morning for portions of the valley and foothills. Temperatures will dip into the low to mid 40's in the valley tonight, into the 40's in the foothills, and into the 20's to lower 30's in the mountains. The northern mountains will have showers arriving late tonight and will continue to have showers through at least early Sunday. The snow levels is projected to be down to around 5500' there. We'll also have a chance for showers in the northern end of the valley, the Sierra, and a slight chance for very light showers in the foothills on Sunday morning. Valley areas have a good chance for more fog developing early Sunday, and visibility will likely be impacted for drivers. Showers will taper off by the late afternoon on Sunday, and we'll be dry through Monday. High temperatures on Sunday are projected to top out in the upper 50's to lower 60's in the valley, and in the 40's to mid 50's in the foothills and mountains.
Monday will be dry and several degrees warmer than Sunday. Some valley areas may even get close to 70 degrees on Monday afternoon. Mountain and foothill areas will end up in the mid 50's to low 60's on Monday afternoon. The next round of rain and snow is projected to arrive across northern California on Tuesday. This wet event looks much more substantial than the one that passed through our region on Friday, but snow levels will not be quite as low. Current projections have snow levels dipping to as low as 4000', with over a foot of snow possible in many areas above 5000'. Up to an inch of rain will be possible in the valley from Tuesday through Wednesday, and foothill areas could see up to 2 and a half inches of rain during that time. Showers will taper off by Thursday morning. Temperatures in the valley will dip into the 40's to low 50's overnight and high temperatures will mostly end up in the mid 50's to lower 60's from Tuesday through the end of next week. Foothill areas can expect low temperatures in the upper 30's to 40's and high temperatures in the 40's to lower 50's, while mountain areas have low temperatures in the teens to low 30's and high temperatures in the 40's to low 50's.
The latest projections keep us dry from Thursday through next weekend, but are hinting at more wet weather returning for hte following week.
