Storm Tracker Forecast: Dry & warmer weather is on the way

There will continue to be a slight chance for scattered showers in portions of Northern California through the middle of this week. Dry and much warmer weather is on the way in your late week and weekend forecast.

Posted: Apr 7, 2020 6:05 PM

Low pressure off the coast of Central California is moving South, but light showers will continue to be possible over the next couple of days in portions of Northern California. Light and scattered showers have returned to some mountain and foothill areas this afternoon, and will also be possible in the valley this evening. There is a slight threat of thunderstorms in foothill areas this evening. Temperatures topped out in the 60's in the valley today, and in the 50's to 60's in the mountains and foothills. Winds have mostly been light and out of the North today.

Mostly dry and mostly sunny conditions are projected for your Wednesday. We'll also have the potential for gusty winds out of the North later in the day. Areas from the mid valley will continue to see modest South winds through tomorrow afternoon, but North winds will start to pick up tomorrow night. Showers will mostly be to our South on Wednesday, but there will be a slight chance for some wrap around showers moving into our region in the afternoon and evening. The latest projections are showing our region staying dry after tonight. Temperatures will be mild for the start of your Wednesday and much warmer for your afternoon. The warmest temperatures will be in our Northern zones, with modest cooling moving through to the South. Valley areas are projected to start out in the mid 40's to low 50's on Wednesday morning, with high temperatures in the mid 70's to low 80's in the afternoon. Mountain areas can expect low temperatures in the 30's, with highs in the 60's to low 70's. Foothill areas can expect low temperatures in the 40's, and high temperatures in the 60's to low 70's on Wednesday afternoon. The high pressure building in from the Pacific is expected to keep our weather pattern dry and warm through your weekend. Temperatures will mostly stay in the same range as Wednesday through your weekend, but winds will not be as gusty late this week. There will also be a slight chance for some showers dropping into the Sierra for the latter part of your weekend as an area of low pressure rides over the top of the ridge and moves into the Rockies. Overall, our weather pattern looks dry and warm through your extended forecast.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
