Staying warm today, but a cooling trend is ahead for this week

Cooler temperatures & cloudy skies return this week

Posted: Oct 22, 2018 6:23 AM

Sunny skies and above average temperatures are on tap for the start of your work week, but some significant changes are ahead for the next few days. Skies are clear for the start of your Monday, and winds are out of the Northeast to around 10mph this morning. Winds are expected to become light through the day. Temperatures have dipped into the 40's to low 50's in the valley overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the 20's to 30's this morning. Foothill areas have dipped into the low to mid 50's for the start of your Monday. Skies will stay sunny through the day, and humidity is projected to dip into the 15 to 25 percent range this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to be in the low 80's in the valley this afternoon, and in the high 60's to high 70's in the mountains later today. The above average temperatures and low relative humidity will result in moderate to high fire danger this afternoon.

Some clouds and cooler temperatures are expected to return for the next several days, but the latest models are keeping showers to our North through the middle of the week. There is still a chance for some showers brushing through the far Northern zones of the state from Tuesday through Thursday, but that is looking less likely now. Low temperatures are not expected to change much over the next few days, but high temperatures will become several degrees cooler. Looks like we can expect mid to high 70's in the valley from Tuesday afternoon through Friday afternoon. Looks like a modest warming trend will then return for your weekend, pushing high temperatures back into the mid 80's in the valley on Saturday. Low to mid 80's are projected for Sunday afternoon. Models were hinting at the potential for a wet system to return to Northern California next week, but those same models are already backing off on that chance for wet weather.
