Mostly sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty North winds are ahead for the north state today. Temperatures dipped into the mid 40's to low 50's overnight in the valley, and into the mid 20's to mid 30's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 70's in the valley, and into the mid 50's to mid 60's in the mountains. Skies are partly cloudy to start off your Wednesday, but will quickly become mostly sunny as high pressure builds into California. Winds will be out of the North to 15mph, with gusts up to around 30mph possible throughout the day.
The sunny skies, and very warm temperatures will continue through the end of the week. Thursday looks to be the warmest day of your extended forecast, but will only be slightly warmer than this afternoon, and Friday. There will not be much, if any, change for the rest of the work week.
Clouds will return to the region on Friday night, and the potential for showers will spread across the Northern Mountains by Saturday evening. Temperatures will only be slightly cooler on Saturday, but will cool by around 5 to 10 degrees on Sunday. Showers will spread across the far Northern zones of the state on Sunday, with a chance for light showers across the mid valley and surrounding areas. Temperatures are only expected to climb into the low 60's on Monday, with more widespread rain projected by the current models. I hope everyone enjoys the spring-like weather through the end of the week, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
