mid state region through at least Wednesday night. Minimum afternoon

modification to the weather pattern to more of a southerly surface
flow pattern is expected Thursday into the upcoming weekend. Minimum

30s east to lower 50s northwest. A frontal system will move through
the mid state on Sunday night bringing with it numerous light showers
and possibly some scattered thunderstorms. Lingering showers will be
possible across the mid state on Monday, before a return to more
seasonal temperatures is expected Monday night into Tuesday.
