Sunny skies, breezy conditions, and very warm temperatures are ahead for your Monday. Valley areas have only dipped into the mid 40's to mid 60's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the high 20's to low 40's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the 72 to 79 degree range in the valley, and into the mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. Some cities could set new records for afternoon high temperatures later today. Chico's high temperatures is projected to be 74 degrees, which would tie the record for this date set in 1907. Oroville's record for this date is 70 degrees, set back in 1984, and the city is expected to top out at 73 degrees this afternoon. There are several other cities projected to surpass their current records for this date. Winds will be out of the Northwest up to around 15mph.
Warm, and dry conditions will persist through most of your work week, but temperatures will start to drop over the next couple of days. Most valley locations will continue to have high temperatures in the 70's through Wednesday. Valley temperatures will then range from the mid to high 60's from Thursday through the weekend. The next chance for showers looks to be Friday, but even that is currently up in the air with the current models. I hope everyone enjoys the warm and sunny weather today, and has a marvelous Monday!
