Storm Tracker Forecast - Warmer This Weekend And Hotter Next Week

High clouds are streaming over northern California on this final day of the workweek, and light showers are trying to fall over the mountains. It is warmer today despite the clouds, and it's going to get much warmer soon. A trough of low pressure is just over the West Coast at this time, bringing widespread high clouds, but most of the rain is along the coast. There will be a chance of light rain over Trinity and Siskiyou counties, with a slight chance of light rain in Shasta County. Lows will be milder tonight, ranging from the 40s in the mountains to the 50s and 60s in the foothills and valley. Saturday will be partly cloudy and warmer as high pressure builds overhead. Highs will range from mountain 70s to valley 80s and lower 90s.

Storm Tracker Forecast: Staying cool with some mountain showers today

Be prepared for cloudy skies, slightly warmer temperatures, and the potential for showers in the Northern Mountains and northern end of the valley today. Our Friday forecast will be influence by two different elements today. We have an area of low pressure off the coast in the Pacific and an area of high pressure off to our east centered in Utah. The low pressure off the coast will keep our high temperatures in check today, and will bring the potential for limited showers to northwestern portions of our region, while the high pressure off to our east acts as a buffer zone to keep moisture from moving further inland. We do have clouds overhead for the start of your Friday, and those clouds have acted as a blanket to trap in more heat overnight. This is resulting in warmer temperatures across our entire region compared to Thursday morning. Valley areas are starting out in the 50's to 60's, while foothill areas are in the 40's to 50's, and mountain areas are in the 30's to 40's to start the day. We'll have mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions in the valley, and partly to mostly cloudy conditions in our mountain areas through the day. The best chance for showers will be in areas closer to the coast, but we can't rule out some light showers moving into areas of the Shasta County mountains, and the far northern end of the valley through the day. The HRRR model is showing more widespread scattered showers possible, but almost all other models are keeping the wet weather confined to the Northern Mountains and Shasta County. Winds will be out of the south to around 15mph this afternoon, and humidity will dip into the 16 to 25 percent range today. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 70's to mid 80's in the valley, mid 60's to mid 70's in the foothills, and upper 50's to lower 70's in our higher elevations this afternoon. The modest winds, chance for showers, and overall mild conditions will leave us back in the moderate range for fire danger this afternoon.

Storm Tracker Forecast: Staying cool but not for long

It's going to be another good morning to throw on an extra layer as temperatures are brisk for the start of your Thursday. A Freeze Warning is in effect for the southern half of Trinity County, and a Frost Advisory is in effect for the northern half of Trinity County through 9am this morning. The low pressure that brought very active conditions to northern California on Wednesday is now tracking through to our east as we start out our Thursday morning. The threat of active weather has diminished as the low tracks east. Clear to mostly clear conditions are ahead for the start of your Thursday morning, but we will have some clouds increasing in our northwestern areas this afternoon. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's to 50's in the valley, 30's to 40's in the foothills, and upper 20's to lower 40's in our mountain zones this morning. Winds will be out of the south to around 10mph this afternoon, and humidity will dip back into the 16 to 23 percent range across most of our region. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 70's to around 80 degrees in the valley, low 60's to low 70's in the foothills, and upper 50's to upper 60's in our mountain zones on Thursday afternoon. Fire danger will be in the moderate range as winds stay light today.
