Mostly sunny to sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and strong North winds are ahead for the north state. Bands of clouds are tracking South through the region, but are breaking apart as they do so. Temperatures have only dipped into the low 50's to low 60's in the valley overnight, and into the mid 20's to high 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 80's in the valley, and mid 60's to mid 70's in the mountains. Winds will be stronger than yesterday, with valley areas projected to have gusts up to around 45mph out of the North. Sustained winds will be between 15 to 30mph out of the North throughout the day. A Wind Advisory will be in place for the valley between 11am this morning, and 5pm this evening. Mountain winds will be closer to 15mph out of the North, with gusts to around 35mph.
Sunny skies, and even warmer conditions are ahead for tomorrow. Valley locations are currently projected to climb into the high 80's to low 90's on Wednesday afternoon. There will be a modest drop in temperatures ahead for Thursday, but valley areas will still top out in the mid 80's.
A significant chance in the forecast is ahead for Friday. Cloudy skies, cooler temperatures, and the potential for (mostly mountain) showers will return to the region. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 70's for the valley on Friday, and will then only top out in the mid to high 60's this weekend. The best potential for showers will rest in the higher elevations, but there will also be a decent chance for valley showers. I hope everyone enjoys the warmer conditions ahead in your mid week forecast, and has a great Tuesday!
