Thankfully our windy, fire danger weather pattern is coming to an end over northern California. The wind will decrease to lighter breezes late tonight through tomorrow, and our fire danger won't be quite as extreme going forward. Unfortunately, there is no wet weather in our immediate forecast either, though. Tonight will be a mostly clear to clear sky with light breezes and seasonably cool lows. Overnight lows will range from the 20s and 30s in the mountains to the 40s and 50s in the foothills and valley. Wednesday will be a mostly sunny to sunny day for our region and temperatures will remain well above average for late October. Daytime highs will range from the upper 60s in the mountains to the 70s and lower 80s in the valley.
A ridge of high pressure will remain in control of our weather pattern through most of the foreseeable future. We will have plenty of sunshine and quiet weather on Thursday. A small trough of low pressure will move north of California on Friday, but will do no more than bring a minor cooldown with a few more high clouds. High pressure is back in control this weekend for Halloween and the end of Daylight Saving Time, and we will have plenty of sunshine. Another trough of low pressure approaching the West Coast early next week will bring a few more clouds next Monday and also on Election Day Tuesday. Highs will remain above average for everyone, ranging from the 60s in the mountains tot he 70s and 80s in the valley.
