It was a bright and breezy Friday for northern California, however the wind has been much stronger over Modoc County where a High Wind Warning is in effect through this evening. Stronger wind and cooler air will define our weather Saturday. The High Wind Warning for Modoc County expires at 7pm and the Wind Advisory expires at 4am. We can expect a mostly clear and chilly night for most locations, with lows ranging from the chilly 10s and 20s in the mountains to the cool 30s and lower 40s in the valley and foothills. Saturday will be mostly sunny and cooler with stronger wind for most locations. Highs will be more seasonable, ranging from the 40s in the mountains to the 50s and 60s in the foothills and valley.
Thankfully the wind won't be as strong Sunday, but the breezes will still be blowing, and we can expect warmer weather, too. The first half of next week looks fairly uneventful for our weather with above average temperatures, a mix of sun and clouds and weaker wind than we've had for a while. There will be an area of low pressure off the California coast, but it appears it will only bring southern California precipitation. A larger trough of low pressure will push into northern California late next week, with increasing clouds, stronger wind and cooler temperatures from Thursday to Friday. There is a chance for some light rain and snow late next Friday and early next Saturday. Valley highs will remain warmer than average.
