Wet weather tapers off today, but more is ahead

Rain, snow, and fog brought big travel impacts this morning, but condition will become more mild this afternoon.

Be prepared for slick roads, and poor visibility on your way out the door this morning. Rain and snow returned to Northern California yesterday, and mountain showers are lingering this morning. There is a chance for some light showers popping up in the valley, but the main event has already passed for lower elevations. I'd keep my umbrella close today, but you may not end up needing it. Snow levels could dip to as low as 4500' today, and a Winter Weather Advisory is in place for areas above 5000' through 10am this morning. Fog is going to be a big issue for commuters early today, with visibility down to around a mile or less in the Northern portions of the valley. Temperatures are on the warmer side this morning. Valley areas have only dipped into the 40's to low 50's overnight, and mountain areas are mostly starting out in the mid 30's this morning. Winds will be out of the Southeast to 10mph this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 50's to around 60 degrees in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas are projected to top out in the mid 40's.

Another shot of wet weather looks likely for the far Northern portions of our region tomorrow, but amounts will be limited. Most of the active weather will stay in higher elevations, but the Northern areas of the valley could see some showers. The potential for wet weather will wrap up on Tuesday night, and we'll be staying dry for Wednesday. Temperatures will mostly be in the mid to high 50's in the valley this week. Light showers are expected to return to our region on Thursday, but we are not expecting any severe impacts with that system. Looks like we'll dry out on Friday and stay dry for your Saturday. Another round of wet weather will be returning on Sunday, and could persist through your Christmas Eve forecast.
