Mostly sunny skies are ahead for your Tuesday morning, but clouds are expected to increase throughout the day. Winds will not be as strong as Monday, and are expected to top out at 10 to 15mph out of the North. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's to low 50's in the valley, and in the mid 20's to mid 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 70's in the valley, and into the mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. Conditions will mostly be mild for the day.
The potential for showers will return to the coastal areas tonight, and will spread across the north state on Wednesday. The latest models have scaled down on the precipitation amounts, and leave the majority of the wet weather in the mountains. There is only a 30 percent chance for light showers in the valley on Wednesday, and a slight chance for afternoon thunderstorms. Rain and snow showers will be ahead for the afternoon and evening hours in the Sierra on Wednesday. Snow levels are expected to dip to around 5500 feet.
Skies will clear out on Wednesday night, and warmer temperatures will return to the region on Thursday. Valley areas are projected to climb back into the low 80's on Thursday, and then into the mid 80's on Friday. Hot weather will return to the region on Sunday, with valley areas projected to climb into the 90's. I hope everyone enjoys these cooler conditions while they last, and has a great Tuesday!
