Dry conditions and clearing skies are ahead for your Monday across northern California. High pressure is building back into our region today after a weak area of low pressure brought light showers to our region last night. Skies are clearing this morning, and will go from partly cloudy to mostly sunny for your afternoon. Temepratures are starting out in the 30's to 40's in the valley and foothills this morning, while mountain areas have mostly dipped into the 20's to 30's overnight. Winds will be up to around 10mph out of the north today, but gusts up to around 15mph are expected. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid 60's in the valley, in the high 40's to low 60's in the foothills, and in the 40's to 50's in the mountains this afternoon.
Sunny skies, slightly cooler low temperatures and slightly warmer high temperatures are expected for your Tuesday forecast. Some valley areas will end up in the mid to high 60's on Tuesday afternoon. A wet weather system to our north will bring the potential for mostly mountain showers back into our forecast from Tuesday night through Wednesday evening. The best chance for showers will be late Tuesday night through early in the day on Wednesday in the Northern Mountains. Snow levels will dip to as low as 3500' there, so some travel impacts are expected as this wet weather tracks through the area. Wednesday morning there will be a slight chance for some light showers in the valley, and the threat of modest rain and snow showers will then track into the Sierra from Wednesday afternoon through the evening. The snow level in the Sierra is expected to dip to as low as 4500' during that time. Modest travel impacts will also be possible in the Sierra on Wednesday evening, so you'll want to plan your travel accordingly if you're heading through the mountains. High temperatures will also end up a few degrees cooler on Wednesday afternoon, but will still top out in the average to slightly above average range.
Dry and warmer weather will return for Thanksgiving Day across our entire region. High pressure is expected to keep our region dry and mostly sunny from Thursday through your weekend. Overnight low temperatures will dip back into the 30's in the valley and foothills, and into the teens to 20's in most mountain areas. High temperatures will mostly end up in the low to mid 60's in the valley, in the 40's to mid 50's in the foothills, and in the 40's to lower 50's in the mountains during that time. Another wet system will be possible towards the start of next week, but models are keeping us dry through this weekend.
