Tomorrow will be another beautiful day in Northern California.
Temperatures will fall quickly once the sun sets and will fall below freezing for the majority of the valley. In the mountains the clear skies and calm winds will allow temperatures to plummet. Expect temperatures around where they were this morning, Alturas will fall to -2, Burney to 3, and Chester to 6. In the valley temperatures will be warmer, but still cold and we could see widespread frost in favored areas and areas near bodies of water. In addition some areas could see patchy fog, but that will be much more isolated and mainly in valleys in the mountains on both sides of the Sacramento Valley.
Tomorrow will be very similar to today in that once the sun warms up we’ll warm very quickly. There will be a few more clouds overhead but they will be the high wispy kind which only cast passing shadows and won’t produce any precip. Our best chance of getting any rain comes on Saturday into Sunday as an ocean storm runs parallel to the coast throwing clouds back at us. We won’t see much moisture from it, just enough to produce an overcast, and a smattering of very isolated sprinkles. The best chance of seeing any of these showers are in the western mountains of Trinity and Siskiyou County.
After that, high pressure builds in again and will clear out the low clouds, though we’ll have high clouds moving through for Monday and Tuesday before clear but cooler air moves in for Wednesday. We’ll be watching closely for any indication of a pattern shift.
