More mild weather is ahead for the valley, but active conditions are ahead for the mountains this afternoon. Mostly sunny conditions are here for the beginning of the day in the north state, but clouds are expected to increase in the higher elevations later today. Temperatures will climb into the low to mid 90's for the valley this afternoon, and the mountains will range from the mid 80's to mid 90's.
More moisture is heading into the Northern Mountains, and the Northern Sierra today, and that will increase the threat of scattered thunderstorms this afternoon, and evening. That threat of mountain thunderstorms will persist into tomorrow, before mild conditions return late week.
Temperatures will cool off tomorrow, before modestly rebounding later this week. Below average high temperatures will continue throughout the region through the weekend. I hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
