You may want to grab a jacket as you head out the door this morning, but it doesn't looks like you'll be needing one for this afternoon. The majority of Northern California will stay dry today, but we do have a lingering chance for scattered showers along the Sierra through early this evening. Sunny to mostly sunny skies are expected in the valley and Northern Mountains today. Sierra and Cascade areas will see an increase in clouds heading into this afternoon. Temperatures have dipped into the high 30's to low 40's overnight in the valley, and mountain areas are starting out in the high 20's to mid 30's this morning. Winds are picking up to around 15mph out of the Northwest by this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to be around 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. Mid 70's are expected in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas will range from the mid 50's to mid 60's later today. North winds could turn gusty tonight, and top out at up to 30mph in some areas.
Dry and warmer conditions are on tap for your Friday, and even warmer temperatures are expected this weekend. Valley areas are projected to climb into the low 80's on Friday, and then into the mid 80's on Saturday. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny for both of those days. We may have a very modest drop in high temperatures on Sunday, and a slight chance for a stray shower sagging just South of the Oregon border. Most areas will stay dry on Sunday, but we could get some showers in areas around Siskiyou County.
Dry, mostly sunny, and warmer weather is ahead for the start of next week. Valley areas will stay in the low to mid 80's from Monday through Wednesday. A chance for mountain showers will return towards the middle of next week.
