Chico, Calif.-- Dry with warmer than normal temperatures and periods of breezy winds through the week.

High pressure remains over the eastern Pacific and that means we're staying clear and dry with a northerly flow.

There's a system to our North that's behind the cloudy skies today, but we're not seeing any rain in our area.

As it moves East we'll get another round of northerly winds Monday afternoon into early Tuesday, but these winds are not expected to be overly strong.

Midweek a small disturbance drops into the Great Basin and we'll get some breezy winds, which combined with low humidity will bring another round of increased fire danger especially on the west side of the valley and coast range and over the Sierra.

Daytime temperatures will gradually cool heading into midweek, with Valley highs in the 70s - a bit cooler than last week but still 5-10 degrees above normal for this time of year.

In fact, at the Redding Municipal Airport the overnight low at midnight last night was 57 degrees Farenheit, breaking a record for the warmest low on November 3rd (the last one was 55 degrees Farenheit in 1992).

By Thursday, strong high pressure still dominates the western U.S.

Although we top out in the 70s, daytime highs will come in a few to several degrees above normal each day while fair skies allow overnight lows to come in a little below normal.

Friday into the weekend, we'll stay breezy and dry so keep fire danger in mind all week long.
