Chilly temperatures, stronger winds, and clearing skies are ahead for your Tuesday forecast. Temperatures are starting out in the low to mid 40's for the valley, and mountain areas have dipped into the high 20's to mid 30's overnight. Afternoon high temperatures are only projected to climb into the mid to high 60's in the valley, and into the mid 40's to high 50's in higher elevations. Winds will be the biggest impact on the region today. Valley areas will have sustained winds from around 10 to 25mph this afternoon, and mountain areas will have sustained winds to around 15mph. Gusts will top out between 30 to 35mph out of the North this afternoon. Skies will become mostly sunny across the entire north state later today.
Temperatures will continue to be very cool over the next few days, and winds will not be as strong heading into your Wednesday. There will be increasing clouds, and the potential for showers in the Northern Mountains on Thursday. The rest of the region will stay dry until the next system arrives in the area on Sunday. Temperatures will return to the low to mid 70's in the valley on Friday and Saturday, before cooling back into the 60's on Sunday. A wet weather system will arrive in the region on Sunday, and continue to give the north state a chance of showers through next Tuesday. I hope everyone is ready for the chilly conditions across the region this morning, stays safe with the strong winds ahead for the north state today, and has a great Tuesday!
