Posted: May 17, 2021 6:12 AM

Sunny skies and warm temperatures are on the way in your Monday forecast. The system that brought cooler temperatures, showers, and thunderstorms to our region over the last several days is now off to our southeast, and high pressure is building into northern California from the Eastern Pacific today. This will result in mostly mild and sunny conditions on the way for your Monday, with temperatures that are slightly above average. Skies are clear for the start of your Monday, and we'll be sunny to mostly sunny today. Temperatures are starting out in the 50's to lower 60's in the valley, and 40's to 50's in the foothills and mountains early today. Winds will be out of the south from 10 to 15mph, and any chance for active weather will be off to our southeast. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid to upper 80's in the valley, and in the 70's for our foothill and mountain zones on Monday afternoon.

Tuesday will have a very similar setup to Monday, and conditions will be almost identical for the second day of your work week. We'll see a few more thin clouds brushing through overhead, but temperatures will start out and end up in the same range as Monday. An area of low pressure dropping down the coast from the Gulf of Alaska will bring some substantial changes into our forecast for the middle to latter part of this week. Temperatures will dip back into the mid to upper 70's in the valley on Wednesday, while foothill and mountain areas mostly end up in the 60's. Clouds will be increasing in our higher elevations late in the day on Wednesday, and there will be a chance for some wet weather in our higher elevations closest to the Oregon border. Temperatures will continue to cool on Thursday, and the potential for showers and thunderstorms will become more widespread across northern California. The best chance for active weather will be in our higher elevations, but there will be a chance for some active weather in the valley as well. The best potential for valley showers and thunderstorms will be in area of Shasta and Tehama Counties on Thursday. Mountain areas will have the potential for rain and snow showers, and thunderstorms from Thursday through this weekend. Our high temperatures will top out in the upper 60's to lower 70's in the valley on Thursday, while foothill and mountain areas top out in the 50's to 60's. We'll see a little clearing overhead on Friday, and showers will not be as likely. Temperatures will be slightly warmer on Friday afternoon.

Temperatures will continue to warm by a few more degrees on Saturday, with valley areas ending up back in the lower 80's on Saturday afternoon. Foothill and mountain areas are mostly expected to stay in the 50's to 60's on Saturday. There will be potential fore more rain and snow showers this weekend, with the best chance for wet weather in our mountain zones. Temperatures will climb by a few more degrees on Sunday, and we'll have mostly sunny skies. There will be a lingering potential for some wet weather in our higher elevations for the latter half of your weekend, but it looks like that potential will subside for the start of next week.

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
