Enjoy the dry and warmer weather while it lasts as we do have showers and cooler weather returning this week. Skies are mostly clear for the start of your Monday, and temperatures have stayed a little warmer overnight. Valley areas are starting out in the mid to high 40's this morning, and mountain areas are ranging from the mid 20's to mid 30's early today. Skies will stay sunny to mostly sunny through your Monday, and winds will be up to 10mph out of the North. High temperatures will end up as warm, if not a degree warmer than yesterday. Valley areas are projected to end up in the low to mid 70's this afternoon, and mountain areas will end up in the low 60's to low 70's later today.
The dry weather is expected to continue on Tuesday, but temperatures will not be quite as warm. Valley areas are projected to climb into the high 60's to low 70's on Tuesday and skies will be partly cloudy. The potential for showers will return late Tuesday into early Wednesday. Temperatures will dip back into the low 60's in the valley, and into the 40's to 50's in most mountain areas. There will be a decent chance for a few thunderstorms popping up across our region on Wednesday, and snow levels will hover around 6000'. Lighter showers will be possible on Thursday, but it does look like we may have a bit of a lull in the wet weather on Thursday afternoon.
A more potent wet system is projected to arrive in Northern California on Friday, and that will last into your weekend forecast. Snow levels could dip to around 4500', and showers are likely to persist into Saturday for most areas. The current outlook for your upcoming weekend is still up in the air, but we'll get a much better idea of what to expect when models come into better agreement over the next few days.
