Strong North winds, cooler temperatures, and the potential for showers are all ahead for your Monday. The best potential for showers will rest in the Northern Sierra today, but there will be a slight chance for showers and afternoon thunderstorms in the valley. Snow levels are starting out in the 3500' range for the Sierra, and at around 2000' for the Northern Mountains. Moisture heading towards the Northern Mountains is very limited, so the potential for showers does not look extremely likely. Valley areas will have a 10 to 20 percent chance of showers this afternoon. Sustained winds are expected to be up to around 30mph out of the Northwest, with gusts to around 40mph today. Strong winds could result in tree limbs, and trees falling into roadways and power lines. Power outages and blocked roadways will be a concern heading into the afternoon. A Wind Advisory will be in place from 10am until 7pm in the valley.
Conditions become much more mild across the region on Tuesday. Temperatures will warm into the mid to high 60's on Tuesday, and into the high 60's to low 70's in the valley by Wednesday. Limited clouds will track across the region over the next couple of days, leaving the region with partly to mostly sunny skies. Sunny skies, and mid 70's will be ahead for the end of your work week in the valley.
Increasing clouds, slightly cooler temperatures, and the potential for light showers will be ahead for the upcoming weekend. I hope everyone stays safe in the wet and windy conditions ahead for today, and has a marvelous Monday!
