Mostly sunny skies, warm temperatures, and a slight potential for scattered evening showers and thunderstorms in the Sierra are all ahead for your Monday. Temperatures have dipped into the 53 to 63 degree range for the valley overnight, and mountain areas have dipped into the mid 30's to mid 40's this morning. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 80's in the valley today, and into the mid 60's to high 70's in the mountains. Winds will be up to around 10mph out of the South. Some moisture is expected to track back into the Sierra this evening, leaving the region with a slight chance for light precipitation and thunderstorms.
More clouds, but very similar conditions are ahead for your Tuesday. There will be an increasing chance for wet weather to return to the coastal areas on Tuesday evening, and the potential for some wet conditions will continue for the Northern Sierra. The potential for widespread showers (light amounts) and unstable conditions will be ahead for the entire north state on Wednesday. Temperatures will top out in the mid to high 70's in the valley on Wednesday, and there will be a decent potential for thunderstorms.
There will be a lingering chance for active weather on Thursday and Friday evenings (mostly in the mountains), and temperatures will be cooler than the start of the week. Valley areas will top out in the low to mid 70's on Thursday and Friday. Cloudy skies are expected for this weekend, with a limited chance for wet weather across the north state. Temperatures will stay in the mid to high 70's for the valley during that time. I hope everyone enjoys the warm conditions ahead for today, and has a marvelous Monday!
