Looks like you'll be wanting those sunglasses early on today, but may end up needing your umbrella if you're going to be out tonight. We'll see a transition from warm and dry weather during the day today, to slightly cooler and active weather returning tonight. Skies are mostly clear as we start your Friday morning, and temperatures have stayed on the warmer side overnight. Valley areas are starting out in the 50's to low 60's this morning, and mountain areas are in the 30's to 40's for the start of your Friday. Winds will be light this morning, and then out of the South to 10mph this afternoon. Clouds will be returning during the day today, and the potential for showers and thunderstorms will return to Northern zones late this afternoon. Showers are expected to move into the Northern Mountains during the late afternoon, and will then spread into the North valley this evening. You may want to have an umbrella handy if you're heading out to the Red Bluff Round-Up tonight. High temperatures are projected to top out in the low to mid 80's in the valley this afternoon, and in the 70's in the mountains today.

Cooler temperatures and more widespread active weather is expected in your Saturday forecast. Showers will be in the Northern portions of our region for your Saturday morning, but the threat of showers and thunderstorms will sag South into the mid valley on Saturday afternoon. Current projected rain totals are under a half an inch in our area, but thunderstorms could produce heavier amounts in some areas. Temperatures will be much cooler on Saturday and are projected to top out in the low 70's in the valley. The active weather will wrap up on Saturday night and we'll be dry for your Easter Sunday. Temperatures will warm back into the high 70's to low 80's in the valley on Easter. The warming trend will ramp up for the start of next week and mid 80's can be expected in the valley on Monday. Even warmer temperatures look likely on Tuesday and Wednesday. Valley areas are currently projected to climb into the 90's both of those days next week. There will be a subtle drop in temperatures towards the end of next week, and models are hinting at a chance of showers returning to the Northern Mountains for the end of next week.
