Critical fire danger is continuing for the start of your Wednesday forecast, but the Red Flag Warning is set to expire at 11am across Northern California. Mostly clear skies, warmer temperatures, and breezy North winds are all ahead for your Halloween forecast. Temperatures have dipped into the 40's to 50's in the valley this morning, and into the 20's to 30's in most mountain areas early today. Winds are expected to stay up to around 15mph out of the North, but gusts are not expected to be as big of an issue as they were yesterday. Humidity will dip into the 15 to 25 percent range for your afternoon, which is slightly higher than what we had yesterday. High temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 80's in the valley this afternoon, and into the low 60's to low 70's in the mountains later today. Mostly pleasant conditions are ahead for your Trick or Treat forecast tonight. We'll be warm and dry this evening, but we'll more than likely still be dealing with breezy North winds.
The warming trend and dry weather will continue into your Thursday forecast. Looks like we're going to end up in the mid 80's with mostly sunny skies in the valley on Thursday. Temperatures will stay in the low to mid 80's in the valley through Sunday, but we are expecting some clouds to return during that time. Breezy North winds may return for the end of the week, and start of the weekend, and that could result in elevated fire danger returning. There will also be a chance for some showers sagging South into far Northern California this weekend. Showers will mostly be limited from Northern Shasta County to the North if we do see them at all. Looks like we can expect to cool back into the high 70's to low 80's in the valley for the start of next week.
