Sunny skies, and well above average temperatures are ahead for your Monday. Valley locations are starting out in the mid 50's to low 60's on this Monday morning, and in the mid 30's to mid 40's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 90's in the valley, and into the low to mid 80's in the mountains. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph in the valley, and out of the East to 10mph in the mountains. Humidity values will be very low this afternoon, with most valley areas expected to fall to around 15 percent. The above average temperatures, and very dry conditions will leave the region under elevated fire danger over the next couple of days.
High pressure centered just to the East of California will continue to dominate your forecast through the middle of the week. Temperatures will be a degree or two warmer on Tuesday, and will continue to be above average through Thursday. Clouds will start to track North into the region on Friday, and temperatures will fall into the mid 80's to low 90's for the valley. Even cooler temperatures, and the potential for showers will return to the north state on Saturday. Skies will be partly cloudy, and temperatures are projected to top out in the low to mid 80's in the valley this weekend. I hope everyone is ready for a very warm start to the work week, and has a marvelous Monday!
