Wet, and windy weather continues in your Monday forecast. Showers will not be as dominant today, but the chance for precipitation will continue into the afternoon. The wet conditions will be scattered, and the chance for thunderstorms will also be ahead for the valley today. Winds are projected to gust to around 45mph out of the South, with sustained winds up to around 25mph. Snow levels have dipped to 6000 feet, and there will be the potential for up to 3 inches of snow throughout the Sierra, and Cascades.
Temperatures are starting out in the mid 50's for the valley, high 40's to low 50's for the foothills, and 40's for the mountains this morning. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the low to mid 60's for the valley, high 50's to low 60's for the foothills, and mid 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Top gusts recorded overnight were up to 56mph out of the South in Redding, and Quincy recorded a gust of 62mph out of the Southwest.
Sunny skies, and warmer temperatures will return to the region by midweek. Sunny skies will be ahead for Tuesday, but the main warming impact will hold off until Wednesday. Temperatures will return to the low to mid 70's towards the latter part of the week, and sunny skies will be ahead through the weekend. I hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!
