The sunshine returned for our weekend forecast, and temperatures sure did warm up nicely from Saturday into Sunday. Valley temps were about 10-15° warmer on Sunday. We even saw some 70° afternoon temperatures, Redding's 74° was enough to tie the record temperature for January 28th that was set in 2015. As we head into Monday we'll be just a tad cooler than Sunday, but there are a few more 70° days coming in the extended forecast.
Clouds will be thickening up throughout Monday from the storm spinning in the Pacific, but clouds are about all we will see from this storm. The dry and warm weather pattern will be strengthening up, and any storms coming towards the West Coast will be re-directed to the North.
Clouds will break up into Tuesday as things really start to dry out and warm up. We'll add a couple of degrees each day throughout the week, and eventually find afternoons in the Valley sitting in the mid 70s for the final day of January and the first few days of February. Definitely a big turn-around from the wet pattern we had for most of January, but can't argue with the beautiful weather. Better get a few rounds of golf in before the rain and snow comes back!
