WILLITS, 9/29/19 -- After a few scorching-hot early fall days, where temperatures topped triple digits in the inland valleys, the weather has quickly turned to something more familiarly autumnal, with temperatures in the low 30s last night, across the North Coast. There's a possibility of light showers and even thunderstorms in some areas today, and temperatures are expected to be even cooler overnight Monday and Tuesday.
Red Bluff and Sacramento hit record lows for this day overnight.
Though there were no record lows on the North Coast. But a Mendocino Voice staff member did observer a little ice on their car this morning. And temperatures are expected to drop.
The cool weather also brings the chance of scattered showers and some thunder storms.
Already there are some showers way up in Del Norte and Humboldt counties, and it's typical for weather coming off the Pacific to make landfall farther north and then gradually reach Mendocino, with lessening intensity.
And the cold weather is expected to continue through Wednesday, before warming up somewhat.
