Dry weather for the next week. Patchy late night and morning fog and frost possible in the Central Valley.


Abundant high clouds cover the region as a weak system moves through the West Coast ridge. Patches of fog have developed in the Central Valley from about the Sacramento area southward. Current temperatures in the Central Valley range from the mid 30s to mid 40s, a mixed bag with some areas running about 5 degrees milder and some areas about 5 degrees cooler compared to 24 hours ago.

Little change expected much of this week as high pressure will maintain dry weather with mild days, cool nights (except for the foothill thermal belts and mountain ridges) and patches of late night valley fog and frost.

Another wave is forecast to move through the ridge on Thursday, but any precipitation chances will likely remain well to the north of the forecast area.

Extended Discussion (Friday through Monday)

EPAC high modeled to be main synoptic feature through the extended forecast period. This will result in dry weather with near to slightly above normal high temperatures.

Some late night/morning fog possible in the Southern Sac/San Joaquin Valleys.
