Clearing skies, lighter winds, and warmer temperatures are ahead for your Wednesday. Clouds are continuing to spill into the Sierra, the foothills, and the mid valley areas early this morning, but are expected to thin out early on this morning. There will be a very slight chance of a stray shower passing through the Sierra early today, but that is looking less likely as high pressure builds into the West Coast. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 40's for most valley areas this morning, and in the mid 20's to high 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 high 60's in the mountains. Winds will be out of the North to around 10mph today, with gusts up to around 20mph.
Mostly sunny to sunny skies, and warmer temperatures will be ahead through the end of the work week. Valley temperatures will top out in the mid to high 70's on Friday, and Saturday. Clouds will filter back into the region this weekend, and a slight chance of showers will return to the Northern Mountains. Temperatures will stay in the low to mid 70's in the valley this weekend, and then fall into the high 60's to low 70's on Monday. The potential for active conditions will return for the start of next week. Cloudy skies, and the potential for showers and thunderstorms will be ahead for Monday afternoon. I hope everyone enjoys the warmer conditions ahead for the region this week, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
