We had mostly dry and warmer weather across Northern California for your Tuesday. Clearing skies and lighter winds will help to result in cooler temperatures in our region overnight. Valley areas mostly topped out in the mid 60's this afternoon, and mountain areas ended up in the mid 40's to low 50's. Winds will only be up to around 10mph out of the North this evening. Temperatures are projected to fall into the high 30's to mid 40's in the valley overnight, and mountain areas will end up in the mid 20's to low 30's on Wednesday morning.

Cloudy skies and mostly dry weather will continue on Wednesday. Temperatures will range in the high 50's to low 60's in the valley on Wednesday afternoon, and mountain areas will top out in the 40's. Another very wet system will be approaching the West Coast on Thursday and will start to bring a slight chance for showers to our region on Thursday afternoon.

Very wet and windy weather is projected to return to Northern California on Friday and that will last into Sunday morning. A Winter Storm Watch is set to take effect at 4pm Friday afternoon and will stay in place through 1pm on Sunday for portions of the Sierra above 5500'. This Winter Storm Watch could very well be upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning as we get closer to Friday. Snow levels will range from around 5000' to 6500' with this incoming storm and several feet of snow will be possible along the higher peaks. Heavy rain will be likely in lower elevations. Up to around 2 and a half inches of rain will be possible in the valley, and mountain areas will see between 2 to 4 and a half inches of rain from Friday morning through Sunday morning. Winds will become stronger, and gusts upwards of 40mph out of the South can be expected on Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will end up in the mid 50's in the valley from Friday through your weekend. Mountain areas will mostly end up in the low to mid 40's this weekend, but higher elevations will stay in the 30's. Dry weather and average temperatures are currently projected to return as we head into next week.

July began on a seasonably hot note for northern California with plenty of sunshine, and fortunately very little wind. We'll have a minor cooling trend through Friday before more heat arrives for the holiday weekend.
