Yesterday's cold front is well off to our south and southeast, allowing for cooler air to spill into the Northstate. There is a chance of showers, including the valley, through late tonight.
We are beginning to see widespread clearing despite pockets of dense fog this morning. The more sun/clear skies we see today the warmer the surface and the more instability in the atmosphere.
A weak disturbance may be able to tap into this instability late this afternoon into the evening and form showers and even isolated thunderstorms.
Once we lose the heating, instability will quickly begin to drop off. After midnight most activity, including the mountains, will drop off.
Snow levels could drop down to 3,500 ft today but accumulations will stay above 5,000ft.
We'll dry out Friday and Saturday for the entire Northstate. A cut-off low may graze the coast Sunday but showers should stay well west of the Northstate.
Patterns continues to support dry weather through the middle to late portions of next week.
