Storm Tracker Forecast: Dry & windy Monday-Tuesday

We've got strong, dry winds ahead for Monday & Tuesday with sunny skies and cooling temperatures. We'll be back into the low-50s by Friday with a chance of showers. The shower chance returns by next Sunday.

Sunday has been a fantastic day in the 70s and quite sunny for most. Willows even hit 80 degrees and Red Bluff broke their previous high temperature record of 76 degrees with 79 degrees. We'll cool off into the low-50s in the valley tonight with mostly clear skies, winds will pick up tonight.

A WIND ADVISORY is in effect for the valley and a HIGH WIND WARNING in part of the Sierra mountians (not the foothills) from Sunday night to Tuesday night. In the valley winds will be sustained at 25-35 mph from the north to east with wind gusts as high as 40-50 mph. Sierra mountain regions could see winds sustained 30-45 mph with winds gusting up to 75 mph in some locations. This will cause difficult driving conditions, especially for high profile vehicles. Downed powerlines and trees will also be possible. Keep loose yard objects and trash cans secure.

The strong winds are coming from a dry inside-slider low pressure system which will move south from canada into southern California to our east and south.

This dry, windy weather will not cause huge fire concerns in our region. It will, however, dry out fuels. With our below average rainfall and a dry forecast, fire danger could become a concern if we receive no significant rain by February.

We'll keep mostly sunny to sunny skies through Thursday with highs gradually cooling after Sunday. Sunday we'll see mid-70s for highs. Upper-60s on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is this Monday. Mid-60s for highs by Tuesday. Highs cooler in the mid-50s by Friday.

Showers will be possible Friday though I don't think the chance for significant rain is great.

Full sunshine returns by Saturday.

Another round of rain is possible by Sunday. Highs will be in the 50s Friday-Sunday.

We've been warming today under a sunny sky, and the heat will only get more intense going forward. Today we warmed back to seasonal averages, and it will get much hotter through the weekend and beyond.
