Wet & windy weather returns today

Gusty South winds, and showers are ahead for your Friday.

Posted: Dec 14, 2018 6:35 AM

Get that umbrella handy, and grab a jacket before you head out the door this morning. It's a chilly, but mostly dry start to your Friday. Fog is going to be the issue on your morning commute, but showers will be the issue for your drive home. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 30's to low 40's in the valley overnight, and mountain areas have dipped into the 20's to 30's this morning. Winds are starting out out of the Southeast to around 10mph, but will become stronger through the day. Valley areas will have winds up to 15mph out of the South, with gusts up to 25mph later today. Winds will be stronger in the Sierra, and a Wind Advisory will be in place from 10am until 10pm. Sustained winds could reach 30mph out of the South in the Sierra, with gusts up to 50mph along the higher peaks. Showers will return to the Northern Mountains this morning, and will spread across the valley in the afternoon. Showers will then ramp up in the Sierra and Cascade ranges tonight. Snow levels will stay high today, and snow is not a major concern for drivers tonight. High temperatures will end up in the mid to high 50's this afternoon in the valley, and into the mid to high 40's in the mountains.

Scattered showers will be lingering across Northern California on Saturday, and temperatures are not expected to change much compared to today. There will be a short lull in the wet weather on Saturday night, but a more substantial storm will move into our area on Sunday. Heavier rain and lower snow are expected for Sunday into Monday. Snow levels will likely dip to around 5000', and travel impacts are likely in the mountains for the start of next week. Showers will taper off on Monday. Models are currently split on what's ahead for Northern California on Tuesday through the end of next week. One solution brings more showers to the Northern parts or our region on Tuesday, while the other holds off on showers until the end of 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.
