WEATHER OUTLOOK/LONG RANGE TREND:
As a surface low moves south toward northern California, winds will slowly ease overnight and Saturday morning.
Saturday highs will struggle to reach the upper 20's to low 30's. Saturday or possibly Sunday morning will likely produce our coldest temperatures of the week, with lows mostly in the teens...and possibly single digits in some sheltered inland locations.
By Monday a shift begins in the weather pattern as a weather system will begin to approach from the southwest moving underneath the high pressure. Temperatures will begin to warm higher in the atmosphere but remain cold at the surface. It looks like precipitation will begin to move in Monday and Tuesday. It could begin as snow or freezing rain in places.
