Sunny and Warmer Monday
The cold system will linger in Northern California on Thursday, keeping the Sacramento area's high temperature in the lower 60s, before the region heats up to the low 70s on Friday and upper 70s Saturday.
EXTENDED: Colder air moves in Saturday night and we'll drop into the low to mid 30s by Sunday morning as light rain and snow develops.
The bulk of the rain will fall during the first half of Saturday with close to an inch possible through Saturday night.
There was a brief respite yesterday, with a cool, clear day, but the bad weather is expected to return again today.
Temperatures in Grand Forks will be in the mid-30s to the upper teens throughout the weekend.
It will warm up through Wednesday with highs in the low 80s by then. Sunday will feature some rain changing over to snow.
Mostly cloudy skies stick around Friday night with warm southeasterly winds around 20 to 30 km/h with gusts of 40 to 50 km/h possible as we cool back into mid-minus single digits.
Clouds will continue to filter in during the afternoon as we warm up to a daytime high a degree or so above freezing.
The North Country is expected to be hit the hardest during a three-day stretch starting today, with snow and lasting through Monday, when up a half-inch of rain and wind gusts approaching 50 miles per hour are predicted. Watch for a few mountain snow showers Saturday and only a slight chance for a passing shower for Bozeman. The rain will continue Sunday night into Monday. Friday morning will bring a chance of snow showers in the morning with that likelihood decreasing in the afternoon. Severe storms are possible, especially for our inland communities in both Virginia and North Carolina. Tomorrow afternoon the wind direction will swing from west to north, so the strong buffeting winds eventually will broadside cars and trucks on southwest-to-northeast and west-to-east roads.
