Tuesday was another sunny and unseasonably warm to hot day for much of northern California. It was much like Monday, except the wind was stronger, and the wind will be much stronger through much of the next week. A Red Flag Warning continues for our area through Wednesday morning, and a Fire Weather Watch from late Wednesday through Friday afternoon will become a Red Flag Warning soon. Tonight will be a clear and seasonable night, and it will be breezy at times. Lows will range from the upper 20s to the lower 40s in the mountains, with 50s and 60s in the foothills and valley. Wednesday will bring more sunshine and wind, with minor cooling. Highs will range from the 70s to the 80s for all areas.
The first of three disturbances will push over our area late Wednesday and Thursday, bringing stronger wind. The air will be colder after that front passes, and a Freeze Watch is in effect for the northern mountains Thursday morning. The wind will also be much stronger from late Wednesday through Thursday, with gusts over 40 mph possible. A second disturbance will bring more breezes Friday and Saturday, followed by a third, stronger disturbance late Sunday and Monday. That will also bring stronger wind to our area. These troughs of low pressure will knock our temperatures back to more seasonable levels, falling from the 70s and 80s on Wednesday to the upper 50s, 60s and 70s for all areas through early next week.
