More active weather is on the way for the start of your work week, but the potential for showers and thunderstorms will be limited to our northern zones today. The rest of northern California will have increasing clouds and mostly comfortable conditions on the way for your Monday afternoon. High pressure will keep the majority of our region dry today, but low pressure tracking through the Pacific Northwest will bring the potential for showers and thunderstorms into areas from Shasta County to the north this afternoon and evening. Skies are starting out mostly clear this morning, but we'll see mostly cloudy skies in our higher elevations closest to the Oregon border, and parlty cloudy skies returning to the northern valley and foothills this afternoon. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's to 50's in most valley and foothill areas, and in teh 20's to 30's in our mountain zones this morning. Wind are starting out out of the north to 10mph, but will shift to become out of the south to 10mph this afternoon. High temperatures will end up in the mid to high 80's in the valley, in the upper 60's to upper 70's in our foothill areas, and in the mid 60's to mid 70's in our mountain areas this afternoon.
The low pressure to our north that brings the threat of thunderstorms to our region today will be shifting to our east on Tuesday. Temperatures will end up slightly cooler for our region on Tuesday, but active weather looks unlikely. Valley areas will mostly top out in the low to mid 80's in the valley, 60's to mid 70's in the foothills, and 60's to lower 70's in our mountain zones. High pressure building into northern California will result in warmer temperatures in your mid week forecast. Valley areas will climb back into the upper 80's to lower 90's on Thursday, while our foothill and mountain zones end up in the 70's to lower 80's. Another area of low pressure will track into the Pacific Northwest on Thursday. This will result in the potential for some mountain showers and thunderstorms returning to our region on Thursday, and also a modest dip in high temperatures on Thursday afternoon. We'll then end up with mostly sunny skies and another warming trend starting on Friday.
Temperatures will get much warmer this weekend, and we'll have partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies. There will be a very slight chance for showers in areas closest to the Oregon border this weekend, but we'll more than likely stay dry. Valley areas will end up in the mid to high 90's this weekend, while foothill and mountain areas top out in the 70's to mid 80's.
