Areas of gusty northerly winds continue today.

Dry conditions are expected through the remainder of the week with cold overnight temperatures and near normal daytime highs.

Next chance of precipitation Is this weekend.

Little change to the morning forecast as the upper low dips into the desert southwest while high pressure nudges in from the eastern Pacific.

Breezy winds are expected today, but they will likely remain below wind advisory criteria this afternoon.

Wednesday into Thursday, high pressure dominates but we'll see calmer winds.

Daytime high temperatures continue near normal with chilly overnight lows.

The next chance for rain arrives this weekend, after a week and a half of drier weather.

The upper low approaches the North State, so expect rainfall to spread across the region early Saturday with accumulating snows over the Sierra & Southern Cascades.

There should be a brief lull in the precipitation as a fleeting ridge moves through Sunday morning, but we're seeing continuing storm threats in it's wake.

It's looking like a deeper trough will impact the weather early next week.

Gusty winds over the Sierra are likely.

The weather will be pulling a 180 as we head into the evening hours and kick off our work week. A north wind will be taking hold, bringing gusty conditions and increased fire danger to the valley, foothills, and the Sierra Mountains. Gusts between 25-35mph are possible from late this evening through Monday night for the valley while the foothills and the Sierra will continue to see the windy conditions through Tuesday morning. This has prompted a Red Flag Warning for the Valley 11pm tonight through 8pm Monday while the Sierra and Foothills will last through Tuesday morning.
