A welcome cooling trend is ahead for the remainder of your work week, but temperatures will stay above average for this time of year. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected over the next several days, but high pressure along the West Coast will keep our regoin dry. Temperatures topped out in the mid 70's to low 80's in the valley this afternoon, and in the mid to high 60's in most mountain areas. Partly cloudy skies and mild temperatures are expected overnight. Valley areas will only dip into the mid to high 40's and mountain aresa will be starting out in the 30's to low 40's on Wednesday morning. High temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 70's in the valley on Wednesday afternoon, and mountain areas will top out in the mid to high 60's tomorrow.

Slightly cooler temperatures will be on tap for the end of your work week, but we'll still end up above average in the afternoons. Ovenright lows in the valley will mostly dip into the mid 40's, and high temperatures will end up in the low 70's on Thursday and Friday. We still have a chance of showers brushing through the Coastal Range and Northern Mountains on Friday night, but the remainder of Northern California will stay dry. Another ridge of high pressure is projected to build into the West Coast this weekend and that will result in a warming trend on the way for Saturday into Sunday. Valley areas will top out in the mid to high 70's on Saturday and then in the mid 70's to low 80's on Sunday.

Models are split on the potential for showers early next week, but the chance for wet weather is starting to look less likely. We will have slightly cooler temperatures on Monday than what we're projecting for Sunday, but high temperatures will still be around 10 degrees above average. The most likely chance for showers we have will be overnight Monday into early Tuesday, but the most recent models are keeping most of the wet weather off the coast during that time. Temperatures will be somewhat cooler on Tuesday with valley highs topping out in the high 69's to low 70's.

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.
