Posted: Jan 27, 2020 5:55 PM

Mostly dry and partly sunny skies returned to northern California today. Most areas stayed dry while some light scattered showers continued to brush through the Northern Mountains. Temperatures topped out in the 50's to low 60's in the valley, while mountain and foothill areas ended up in the 40's to 50's. Winds are out of the South to around 15mph this evening. Clouds will start to fill back into our region this evening ahead of the next chance for showers that is expected to move into the Northern Mountains later tonight. The potential for showers will return to the northern end of the valley by around midnight, and then a chance for scattered showers will sag South through early in the day on Tuesday. Shower chances look much better in northern zones of our region. Redding will have a 70 percent chance for showers early in the day tomorrow compared to a 30 percent chance for some showers in Chico. The best chance for showers will be during the morning, and then will slowly diminish through your afternoon. Overnight low temperatures are projected to drop in to the mid 40's in the valley, and into the low to mid 30's in most mountain areas. High temperatures are projected to end up in the high 50's to around 60 degrees in the valley, and mountain areas will mostly top out in the mid 40's. The potential for showers is currently expected to wrap up head into tomorrow night.

Dry and warming weather is projected for the remainder of the week. Skies will trend partly to mostly cloudy from Wednesday through Saturday. Temperatures will top out in the low 60's in the valley on Wednesday and will climb into the high 60's to low 70's for your Friday and Saturday. Mountain areas will be in the 40's to low 50's on Wednesday and will also slowly warm through the end of the week. Most mountain areas will end up in the high 40's to high 50's for the end of your work week and start of the weekend. We'll also have a slight chance for some overnight and early morning fog development in valley areas, but the cloudy skies and moderate winds could limit that potential.

The next chance for showers is projected to return to the north state just in time for Super Bowl Sunday. Mountain and North Valley areas are currently projected to have the best chance for wet weather on Sunday, but that still is a ways off and is subject to change.

It was a bright and breezy Friday for northern California, however the wind has been much stronger over Modoc County where a High Wind Warning is in effect through this evening. Stronger wind and cooler air will define our weather Saturday.
