Get that umbrella handy before you head out the door this morning. Showers and thunderstorms became more widespread across our region yesterday and are expected to become even more of a widespread issue this afternoon. The active weather persisted for most of last night, but has fizzled out in our region this morning. More showers and a very decent chance for thunderstorms will be on tap for today. Temperatures have stayed warm overnight. Valley areas are starting out in the 60's, while mountain areas have only dipped into the mid to high 40's this morning. Skies are partly cloudy this morning, but will become mostly cloudy this afternoon. Winds will be out of the Southeast to around 10mph this afternoon. We'll start to see some scattered showers popping up in the mountains before noon today but the main event will hold off until this afternoon and evening. Pockets of heavy rain and thunderstorms are looking likely later today. The biggest impacts are still expected for the mountains but there is a very good chance for active weather in the valley as well. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 80's in the valley today and in the 60's to 70's in the mountains this afternoon. The active weather will persist into tonight. I would keep an umbrella handy for the Thursday Night Market in Chico this evening.

We'll have a very substantial warming trend ahead for your extended forecast. Valley areas will mostly dry out after tonight, but the threat of showers and thunderstorms will continue to return for the next several afternoons in the mountains. Temperatures will climb into the low 90's in the valley on Friday and will end up in the mid to high 90's by Monday. The threat of showers wil finally taper off in the mountains for the start of next week. High temperatures will then soar into the high 90's to triple digits in the valley on Tuesday and will stay in that range on Wednesday. Please make sure you're prepared for the big increase in temperatures. Dress for the heat, and drink plenty of water. Also keep a close eye on loved ones, as the rising temperatures could result in health issues.
