Partly to mostly cloudy skies, the potential for northern showers this afternoon, and stronger South winds are ahead for your Tuesday. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's to mid 50's in the valley, and in the high 20's to mid 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the high 60's to mid 70's in the valley, and into the mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. Clouds have been thinning out across the region over the last couple of hours, but are expected to become more prevalent this afternoon. The potential for showers looks strong for the Northern Mountains, and there will be a decent chance for at least light showers tracking across the North valley, and the Northern end of the Sierra. Winds will be picking up this afternoon. Valley areas (especially the Northern end of the valley) will have gusts up to around 25mph out of the South, and mountain areas could have gusts up to around 45mph this afternoon/evening.
Mostly dry, but cloudy conditions are expected for your Wednesday forecast. Temperatures could actually rebound by a degree or two tomorrow, before a cooling trend takes hold of the region. Showers will then be very possible on Thursday and Friday (with the strongest emphasis on Northern zones again), before more widespread rain is projected to return for the upcoming weekend. Temperatures are expected to continue to cool up through Sunday, when valley high temperatures are only projected to reach mid to high 50's. There is also now building confidence that more wet weather will be ahead for next week. I hope everyone is ready for the return of wet weather for the north state, and has a great Tuesday!
