Cooler temperatures, cloudy skies, and the potential for more wet conditions are ahead for your Tuesday forecast! Scattered showers were lingering across the north state early this morning, but look to dwindle throughout your Tuesday. There will still be a chance of showers across the region, but they will not be as prevalent as what the area had on Monday. Temperatures dipped into the high 50's to low 60's in the valley overnight, and into the mid 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to be in the low to mid 70's for the valley, and in the low to mid 60's in the mountains. Winds will only be up to 10mph out of the West for the North valley, and out of the Southeast to 10mph in the mid valley. Mountain areas will have winds up to 15mph out of the South.
A much better chance for widespread showers, and even cooler temperatures will be ahead for your Wednesday. A strong low pressure system will drop down from the Gulf of Alaska and take hold of the north state. Temperatures will only climb into the mid to high 60's in the valley on Wednesday afternoon. Around a third of an inch of rain is expected in the Northwest corner of the state, with lower amounts expected across the interior of Northern California. Winds will be out of the South up to around 15mph.
Skies will clear out on Thursday morning, and temperatures will start to warm into the mid 80's towards the end of the week. Valley areas will see a return to the low to mid 90's with sunny skies this weekend. I hope everyone stays safe on the wet roads with the upcoming rain, and has a great Tuesday!
