The chance for scattered showers will linger on Tuesday, but they're expected to be light. Dry and warmer weather returns for the middle of the week before another round of wet weather is expected to arrive for your weekend.

We've had overcast skies, scattered showers, and gusty winds across northern California on Monday. Most of the valley has seen gusts up to around 25mph, with some cities like Chico seeing gusts of almost 30mph. Sustained winds have been up to around 20mph. Temperatures topped out in the high 50's to mid 60's in the valley, and in the 40's to 50's in the foothills and mountains. The potential for scattered showers will continue this evening, with another round of scattered showers possible on Tuesday.

We'll be slightly warmer for your Tuesday forecast, but the potential for scattered will linger across the north state. The best chance for showers is expected to continue to be in the northern end of the valley and mountains. Up to around a 10th of an inch of rain will be possible in the valley, and mountain areas can expect up to a half an inch of precipitation. Snow levels will hover at around 5000' in the Sierra, and at around 4000' in the Northern Mountains. Low temperatures will end up in the mid to high 40's in the valley overnight, and high temperatures will top out in the mid to high 60's tomorrow afternoon. Mountain areas can expect a dip into the 20's to 30's for the start of your Tuesday, and high temperatures in the 40's to 50's.

Dry and warmer weather is expected from Wednesday through Friday. Skies will be sunny on Wednesday and Thursday, with some clouds returning on Friday. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 60's to low 70's in the valley during that time, and in the 50's for most mountain areas. Low temperatures will end up in the 30's to 40's in the valley mid to late week, and mountain areas can expect overnight low temperatures in the 20's. Gusty north winds will be possible on Wednesday and Thursday as pressure gradients become tighter.

The next chance for showers will arrive along the coast as early as Friday night, but will hold off until Saturday for the majority of northern California. The current projections have an area of low pressure sliding down the coast from the Pacific Northwest and bringing light to moderate showers to our region from Friday through Monday. The timing of this system is still between 4 to 5 days out, so we should get a much clearer picture of what to expect for your weekend over the next few days. Temperatures are also projected to be cooler as this system takes hold of the north state.

It was a bright and breezy Friday for northern California, however the wind has been much stronger over Modoc County where a High Wind Warning is in effect through this evening. Stronger wind and cooler air will define our weather Saturday.
