Dense Fog Advisory for the Southern Sacramento Valley, Clear Skies After Noon
Redding, Red Bluff, Chico
The sun will stick around through the whole day today, clouds return tomorrow.
A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service in Sacramento for the Sacramento Valley to Orland. Chico, Orland, Willows and Oroville are included in the watch area. The advisory will expire at noon today. Temperatures in the area have been around freezing, with many areas just below. This could result in areas of freezing fog which could make roadways slick this morning.
High pressure builds in from the northwest today allowing the NorthState to clear out. Temperatures will respond by breaking into the low 50s in the valley, but the sun will make it feel warmer. The very cold air overhead will keep the higher elevations in the 30’s to low 40’s depending on elevation, but we won’t see any snow. The clouds do return tomorrow as a weak storm misses us to our west. It will throw just enough moisture back at us to give us a full overcast and a few isolated snow showers and flurries, mainly to the north and the east around Mt. Shasta City and Burney. Redding could see a few flakes fly around but the showers be very short lived and won’t stick to anything.
The sun finally returns on Sunday as high pressure builds back in from the north. Temps will moderate as the high keeps the Arctic air trapped up north. By new years day we could be talking temps in the mid to upper 50’s with lots of sunshine. We’ll keep you posted with the latest on your New Years forecast.
