Clouds are returning to portions of Northern California as we head into your evening hours, and we'll have a slight chance for light showers in areas of the Sierra, foothills, and mid valley this evening. The main threat of wet weather is expected to stay to our South, but some light wrap around showers will be possible in those areas this evening and early in the day on Thursday. Clouds will be thickest in our southern areas and become thinner heading to the North. Much warmer temepratures and gusty winds have also developed across our region today. We've had high temperatures mostly in the 70's to low 80's in the valley this afternoon, in teh mid to high 60's in the foothills, and in the 60's to 70's in the mountains. Sustained winds have topped 15mph out of the North and we've seen gusts up to around 25mph in your afternoon. We will still have the chance for gusts up to 30mph tonight. The strongest gusts today have been in Redding.

There will be a lingering chance for light showers tracking into the far Southern portion of our region early in the day on Thursday, but we'll be mostly dry moving forward in your forecast. Skies will start out partly to mostly cloudy early in the day on Thursday, but will clear as we head into your afternoon. Temperatures will dip into the 40's to low 50's overnight in the valley and foothills, while mountain areas mostly dip into the 30's. High temperatures are not expected to be as warm on Thursday afternoon as downslope winds decrease. Winds will mostly be out of the Southeast to around 10mph on Thursday afternoon. High temperaturs will end up in the 60's to mid 70's in the valley and mountains. Foothill areas will end up in the 50's to low 60's on Thursday afternoon.

We'll still have some clouds lingering in our region on Friday, but skies will be clearing through the day. The main impact in your extended forecast will be high pressure building into the West Coast from the Eastern Pacific. We'll have mostly sunny skies by Friday afternoon. Low temperatures in the valley are projected to dip into the 40's to low 50's, and high temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 70's to low 80's from Friday through the start of next week. Mountain areas can expect sunny skies, with low temperatures in the 30's and high temperatures in the 60's to low 70's through this weekend. Easter Sunday looks mostly pleasant and warm for the majority of our region, but an area of low pressure dropping into the Rockies may bring a slight chance for scattered showers to the Sierra. Dry, warm, and mostly sunny conditions are currently projected to continue through the middle of next week.
