Mountain showers tonight & A Red Flag Warning ahead for Saturday

Posted: Dec 15, 2017 8:03 AM

A nice change of pace on the way for your Friday forecast, and critical fire danger is on the way this weekend. Cloudy skies, and lighter winds have resulted in a mild morning across the region. Valley areas have dipped into the mid 30's to low 40's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the high teens to high 20's. Winds are expected to be light today, and skies will stay cloudy. High temperatures will range from the low to mid 60's in the valley, and in the high 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Showers will return to the Northern Mountains this evening, and will quickly track through the Sierra by very early Saturday morning.

Saturday will be dry, and winds will become much stronger. Low humidity and gusty winds are prompting a Red Flag Warning to be put in place at 10pm Friday night, and will stay in place until 10am Sunday morning for the majority of the valley. North winds could gust up to 50mph. Residents are advised to avoid lighting outdoor fires on Saturday. Temperatures will end up in the same range as today.

Not as windy, and a bit warmer for your Sunday forecast. A very modest cooling trend will then arrive for the start of next week. It will stay dry for Monday and Tuesday. Even cooler temperatures and a decent chance for showers will be ahead for Wednesday of next week. Some showers may linger into early Thursday, but the end of next week looks dry.

We head into the holiday weekend on a slightly cooler than average note, but that will change quickly on the 4th of July and on Sunday with more heat and stronger breezes coming.
