Low pressure tracking through the Pacific Northwest has brought a thin blanket of clouds and the potential for sprinkles to northern California early today. The best chance for any wet weather will be limited to our mountain areas, but there is a chance for a trace of rainfall in the valley early to mid day. Skies will be clearing through the day, and mostly sunny to sunny skies are expected by this afternoon. Temperatures are starting out warm across our region this morning. Valley areas are in the 40's to 50's, foothill areas are mostly in the 40's, and mountain areas are ranging from the upper 30's to 40's early Monday. Skies are starting out mostly cloudy this morning, but we'll be partly cloudy by noon, and mostly sunny this afternoon. Winds will be out of the south to 10mph in the valley and foothills, and out of the west to 10mph in the Sierra today. Temperatures are projected to end up in the lower 70's in the valley, and in the mid 50's to mid 60's in the foothills and mountains. Some portions of the Northern Moutnains may end up a little warmer as skies clear out there earlier than the rest of our region.

Models are pushing the low pressure down into the Rockies after today. High pressure will be modest, but will build back over northern California this week. That will resuilt in dry weather, sunny to mostly sunny skies, and above average temperatures on the way for this week. You can expect low temperatures in the 40's to lower 50's in the valley, with high temperatures in the mid to high 70's from Tuesday through Friday. Foothill areas will start out in teh 40's to lower 50's, and end up in the 60's to lower 70's from Tuesday through Friday. Mountain areas will dip into the 20's to 30's over the next several morning's, and end upin the 60's to lower 60's from Tuesday through Friday.

Earlier models were hinting at the potential for some wet weather returning late this week into the weekend, but the latest model data is showing our region staying dry. The forecast is also calling for temperatures to warm by a few degrees for your upcoming weekend. Valley areas are projected to top out in the upper 70's to lower 80's, while foothill and mountain areas end up in the 60's to 70's this weekend. Looks like it will be another great weekend for getting outdoors!
