Increasing clouds, a slight potential for mountain showers/thunderstorms, and above average temperatures are all ahead for your Tuesday. Mostly cloudy skies have returned to most areas of the north state overnight, with the thickest clouds tracking through the mountains. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will be ahead for the day in the valley. There will be a slight chance for afternoon and evening showers in the coastal areas and Northern Mountains. A slight chance for isolated thunderstorms will be ahead for the Northern Sierra this afternoon. There is only a 10 percent chance for wet weather to head through the valley today. Temperatures are starting out in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and in the high 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the low to mid 80's in the valley, and into the mid 60's to mid 70's in the higher elevations. Winds will be up to around 10mph, and are expected to vary in direction.
A much better chance for active weather will be ahead for your Wednesday. Northern zones of the state will get the biggest impact, but most areas will have at least a 40 percent of wet weather for Wednesday. Temperatures will drop by about 5 degrees on Wednesday compared to today. The potential for wet weather starts to diminish on Thursday, but the cooling trend will continue. Valley areas will top out in the mid 70's on Thursday, and will stay in the mid to high 70's through Saturday. There will still be a chance for active weather in the mountains through the weekend, but he potential is not as likely as the next couple of days. I hope everyone is ready for the return of active weather to the north state, and has a great Tuesday.
