Wet & cooler end to your work week

Widespread showers and cooler temperatures are ahead for the end of your work week, but it's going to get hot for your Memorial Day

Posted: May 24, 2018 6:34 AM

Cooler temperatures, and more active weather are on the way for the end of the week, but it looks like we'll get a little bit of a lull in the active weather during the day today. Showers wrapped up late last night, and we are starting out dry this morning. Skies are clear across the region, and there is plenty of sunshine expected this morning. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 50's to low 60's in the valley overnight, and into the mid 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Skies are expected to stay sunny in the valley through the afternoon, but clouds will be increasing in the mountains later today. Showers and thunderstorms will more than likely hold off until this evening across the Sierra, but it's not a bad idea to keep your umbrella handy just in case some showers develop earlier this afternoon. Winds are starting out light this morning, but will be up to 10mph out of the South later today. High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than yesterday. Valley areas are projected to top out in the low 80's this afternoon, and mountain areas will range from the mid 60's to mid 70's later today. Showers and thunderstorms will more than likely develop across the Sierra after 6pm this evening. Conditions do look pleasant for the Thursday Night Market this evening in Chico.

Big changes are on the way for your Friday. Widespread showers, a decent chance for mountain and valley thunderstorms, much cooler temperatures, and high elevation snow are all ahead for your Friday. Showers will spread from South to North across Northern California during the morning hours on Friday, and the potential for widespread showers will continue into early Saturday. Temperatures are only expected to top out in the high 60's to low 70's in the valley on Friday afternoon, while mountain areas end up in the 50's to 60's. Up to 2 inches of snow will be possible down to 7000' in the mountains from Friday morning through Saturday morning.

Showers are expected to linger through mid morning Saturday in the Sierra, but most other areas will dry out by Saturday morning. Skies will clear, and temperatures will climb back into the high 70's on Saturday afternoon in the valley. Dry and warmer conditions will then settle in for Sunday into Monday of your Memorial Day Weekend. Temperatures will climb back into the high 80's in the valley on Sunday, and will then end up in the mid 90's on Monday. We will stay mostly dry and very warm on Tuesday, but a chance for mountain showers will be on the way to the mountains on Tuesday night. Models are currently split on whether or not to bring more showers to the mountains towards the middle of next week, but it does look like we'll have a decent chance for more wet weather on the way in your long range forecast.
