Mostly sunny to partly sunny skies, and above average temperatures are ahead for your Wednesday. Valley areas have only dropped into the high 50's to mid 60's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the high 30's to high 40's this morning. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 90's in the valley, and into the mid 80's to around 90 degrees this afternoon. A few high clouds have arrived in the region this morning, with more expected to filter in throughout the day. The mid valley, and surrounding areas are expected to have partly cloudy skies by late this afternoon, while the rest of the region will have clouds increasing tonight. Winds in the valley will be light, and mountain areas will have winds out of the East up to around 10mph. Humidity values will continue to be very low, and the dry conditions mixed with above average temperature will continue to leave the region under elevated fire danger today.
Temperatures are only expected to drop by around 2 or 3 degrees on Thursday, and a much more significant drop in temperatures is expected on Friday. There will be a chance of showers arriving in the Northern Sierra on Thursday, and Friday. Valley areas will have a slight chance of wet weather arriving this weekend. Temperatures will fall into the high 70's to mid 80's over the weekend in the valley.
Dry, and warmer conditions will return to the region on Monday, as a ridge of high pressure builds back into the West Coast. Temperatures will be in the mid to high 80's for the start of next week in the valley. I hope everyone is ready for another hot day across the north state, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
