Well above average temperatures, sunny skies, and modest North winds are ahead for your Wednesday. Looks like temperature records are slightly safer today, but mainly because Redding and Red Bluff both have a record high of 80 degrees for this date from 2016. Temperatures are starting out in the high 40's to 50's in the valley this morning, and in the 20's to 30's in the mountains. Skies will be clear, and North winds are expected to top out around 10mph through the day. High temperatures are projected to top out in the mid to high 70's in the valley, and in the low to mid 60's in the mountains today. Safe to say the abnormally warm conditions are continuing for your Wednesday.
The trend of well above average temperatures will continue through the end of the week. Thursday will likely be the warmest day of the week, with a couple of valley cities projected to climb into the 80's. A subtle drop in temperatures is expected for Friday, but valley areas will still end up in the mid to high 70's. A few clouds will return for your weekend, but we have removed any chance for mountain showers from your forecast. High temperatures will top out in the low to mid 70's this weekend, and winds will be gusty. We will have the potential for gusts to 40mph out of the North on Saturday. The cooling trend will continue for the start of next week, as valley areas finally dip back into the 60's. That dip will be short lived, as 70's are then expected to return on Tuesday. Dry weather will persist throughout your entire extended forecast.
