Sunny to mostly sunny skies, above average temperatures, and breezy conditions are ahead for your Wednesday Farmcast. There is a wide disparity on temperatures across the valley this morning. Areas of Chico, Corning, and Red Bluff have had very modest winds, and have dipped into the mid to high 50's overnight. Stronger North winds have left areas like Redding, and Oroville in the mid 60's to low 70's. Afternoon high temperatures should not have as much variety, and are only projected to climb into the low to mid 80's. Winds will be out of the North from 10 to 15mph, and humidity values will fall to around 25 percent for most cities in the valley this afternoon. The very dry, warm, and breezy conditions will continue to leave the region under elevated risk of fires today. Your Wednesday morning sunrise is set for 7:23am, and sunset will be at 6:19pm.
There will be a modest cooling trend ahead through the weekend, but temperatures will only fall to around average for this time of year. Wind speeds are expected to drop by Thursday. Valley areas will see clouds increase this weekend, and temperatures falling into the high 70's to low 80's. The next chance for showers will arrive on Sunday night, and continue on Monday. The amount of showers does not look to be impressive from that system, but a more impressive system will head into the region towards the middle of next week.
