Redding, Calif.- We're still seeing winds out of the Northeast today across the valley, sustained at about 10-20 mph in Redding and up to 41 mph in gusts.

That's going to last through tonight at about 8 p.m. when we see those winds die down a bit, but we'll stay pretty breezy tomorrow as well.

High pressure dominates the forecast area all week long, with sunny skies and cool morning lows through our work week and into next weekend.

Breezy to gusty wind with lowering humidity will lead to increasing fire weather concerns into Monday.

All the wind is driven by Upper-level ridging over the eastern Pacific, and an upper trough of low pressure dropping southward into the Great Basin.

As the trough continues to dig southward, a strong surface pressure gradient will develop; coupled with upper air support, this is why we're seeing windy conditions across the North State.

Today, expect local gusts of 15-30 mph reported mainly in southern Lake County, the mountains of West Shasta County and the North Valley as well as the Sierra foothills.
