Get ready for a chilly and windy start to your 2019! Gusty North winds have continued overnight, and the Wind Advisory is set to stay in place through 10am this morning. Gusts up to 45mph are still possible out of the North, but winds will be diminishing this afternoon. Winds will mostly be up to 15mph out of the North this afternoon. Skies are clear, and temperatures are chilly this morning. Valley areas have dipped into the 30's to 40's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the teens to 20's this morning. We'll be staying sunny and cool this afternoon. High temperatures are only projected to climb into the mid to high 50s in the valley this afternoon, while mountain areas end up in the mid 30's to mid 40's. If you're looking to take part in the Polar Bear Plunge, make sure you have a substantial towel and a good way to warm up. Temperatures will be in the mid to high 40's at noon in Chico.

The chilly and dry weather will persist for the rest of the work week. Temperatures will top out in the mid to high 50's in the valley, and fall into the 30's overnight. You're going to want to stay bundled up through the end of the week. Looks like you'll be needing that umbrella again starting on Saturday. A wet system will arrive along the coast early Saturday morning, and will spread across Northern California by mid day. More wet weather is likely on Sunday and Monday, but models are mixed on timing and amounts. Winds may also be an issue on Saturday, and could become gusty out of the North. Temperatures will not change much when the rain returns, but overnight lows should become a bit warmer head into the start of next week.
