Storm Tracker Forecast: Dry & warmer weather ahead

Dry and warmer weather is ahead for the middle of your work week, but the chance for showers is on the way in your extended forecast.

Posted: Apr 13, 2020 6:15 PM

We had sunny skies, warm temperatures, and gusty North winds over Northern California for your Monday afternoon. Sustained winds reached upwards of 20mph and gusts topped 30mph in portions of the valley earlier today. Temperatures topped out in the mid 70's in the valley, in the mid 60's to low 70's in the foothills, and in the 50's to 60's in most mountian areas. High pressure off the coast in the Pacific has been the dominant feature in our forecast today and will continue to be the main driving factor in our forecast over the next few days.

Skies will be sunny, temperatures will be warmer, and winds will be lighter for your Tuesday. Valley areas will start out in the mid to high 40's and end up in the high 70's to low 80's on Tuesday. Winds will be up to around 15mph out of the North, but we are not expecting gusts as strong as Monday. Foothill areas can expect low remperatures in the mid to high 40's, with high temperatures in the high 60's to mid 70's on Tuesday. Mountain areas will start out in the 20's to 30's on Tuesday and will end up in the mid to high 60's for the Sierra and in the lwo to mid 70's in the Northern Mountains. Sunny to mostly sunny skies, dry weather and slightly warmer temperatures can be expected for your Wednesday and Thursday. Most of the valley is projected to end up with low temperatures in the low 50's, and high temperatures in the low to mid 80's during that time. Mountain areas will have slightly warmer overnight low temperatures over the next several days, but the bump in daytime high temperatures is just expected on Wednesday.

An area of low pressure dropping down to our East will bring a chance for showers back to portions of the Sierra and foothills Thursday afternoon through Friday, but the best chance for showers will be to our South. Most of Northern California will be staying dry and warm through Friday.

Low pressure will be dropping towards the Northern California coast from the Gulf of Alaska as we head into your weekend and will merge with a second area of low pressure tracking East from the Pacific. Clouds will become more prevelant over our region from Friday through your weekend and there will be a chance for showers returning as early as Saturday for most areas. Temperatures will drop to around average by Sunday and the chance for showers does look more likely in your Sunday forecast. Mountain and foothill areas will more than likely see the bulk of the wet weather but the current outlook also brings a decent chance for some showers to the valley. Cloudy skies, average temperatures, and the potential for showers will continue through the start of next work week.

A hot week will transform into an even hotter weekend over northern California as high pressure stays in control of our weather. No rain is in the forecast, but it will cool a bit by late next week.
