Skies stayed mostl sunny across Northern California today and we did warm up nicely after the cold start this morning. Valley areas ended up in the high 50's to low 60's this afternoon, and mountain areas topped out in the high 30's to mid 40's. Winds have been out of the North to around 15mph but are expected to become lighter this evneing. The clear skies and light winds will help to result in another chilly night in our region. Make sure to grab that jacket if you're going to be out and about tonight or early tomorrow. Low temperatures will end up in the mid 30's in the valley overnight and mountain areas will dip into the teens to mid 20's for the start of your Saturday.

Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy on Saturday afternoon. We'll be staying dry and temperatures will end up around if not a little above average. Valley areas are projected to climb into the mid to high 50's, the foothills will end up in the high 40's to mid 50's, and the Sierra will end up in the low to mid 40's. Parts of Trinity County area expected to top out in the low to mid 50's. We'll have a wet and cooler system on the way as we head into your Sunday forecast. Showers will move into the coast early Sunday morning and will spread across the rest of our region through the afternoon. Snow levels are currently projected to dip into the 4000' to 5000' range, but Shasta County could see snow levels slightly lower than that. Up to a third of an inch of rain will be possible in the valley and up to around 3 inches of snow can be expected down to around 4500'. Temperatures will be several degrees cooler on Sunday. High temperatures are projected to end up in the high 40's to low 50's in the valley and mountain areas will mostly end up in the mid 30's to low 40's. The wet system is only expected to impact Northern California on Sunday before sliding down to Southern California for the start of next week.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures will return to our region on Monday. The trend of mostly sunny skies, dry weather, and above average temperatures will continue for your New Years Eve and New Years Day. Valley areas can expect high temperatures to end up in the high 50's to low 60's for the end of 2019 and start of 2020. Low temperatures in the valley will mostly range from the high 30's to low 40's next week. Mountain areas will end up with high temperatures in the low 40's to low 50's, and low temperatures in the 20's for the better part of next week. Partly cloudy skies will be returning as we head towards the end of next week, and current model projections are bringing a very slight chance for showers back to our region on Friday.
