Dry and Warm to wrap up 2017

The dry and warm trend continues this week.

Posted: Dec. 25, 2017 6:37 PM

Quite a change in the forecast from our Christmas Eve into Christmas Day. We went from cloudy and cold, to warm and sunny. Christmas afternoon temps in the Valley topped off around the mid 60s, with some mild 40s/50s in the Mountains.

As we're wrapping up 2017, it doesn't look like much is going to change. In fact, we're looking at some warmer temperatures returning, and a few spots will be close to the 70° by the end of the year.


We've been extremely dry through the Fall and the start of Winter so far. Valley has received less than 0.25" of rain to date, when last year we had around 6.00" by this day. A lot of big Pacific storms have rolled through the West Coast, but most of them missing us to the North. Another storm looks to barely brush NorCal around Wednesday, but models show that all we will really see are some clouds and little moisture.

This trend doesn't look to go away anytime soon. Dry and warm weather is expected to wrap up 2017, and should stick around into early 2018.
