Partly cloudy skies will clear out, and become mostly sunny for your Tuesday afternoon. High pressure will continue to build across the Southwest, and leave the region with a slow but sure warming trend over the next few days. There will be a slight chance for light showers dropping into the Northern Mountains over the next few days, but most of the region will stay dry. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 30's to low 40's in the valley, the Sierra/Cascades dipped into the mid 20's overnight, and the Northern Mountains only dipped into the low to mid 40's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 60's in the valley, and into the mid 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Winds will not be as strong as yesterday, and are only expected to top out at around 10mph out of the North.
Clouds will continue to fluctuate through the end of the week, and valley temperatures will slowly climb back into the low to mid 70's by Friday. High pressure begins to break down this weekend, and temperatures will dip back into the mid to high 60's. The next chance for widespread precipitation will return to the region on Monday into Tuesday. That system will have big impacts for those traveling for Thanksgiving week. I hope everyone enjoys the slightly warmer conditions ahead for the next several days, and has a great Tuesday!
