Storm Tracker Forecast: Staying dry & warm this week

We'll stay dry and warm through the end of this work week, but the potential for showers will be returning this weekend.

Posted: Feb 17, 2020 5:55 PM

We had mostly sunny skies, warm temperatures, and gusty north winds over northern California today. Sustained winds topped out close to 30mph in some parts of the valley but mostly ended up around 20mph this afternoon. Gusts up to around 30mph were observed in the northern end of the valley. Skies were mostly sunny and temperatures ended up well above average. Valley areas topped out in the mid 60's to low 70's, foothill areas topped out in the low to mid 60's, and mountain areas ended up in the 50's to low 60's.

Winds are expected to become somewhat lighter tonight, but will stay breezy on Tuesday. Temperatures will continue to trend several degrees above average but may not be quite as warm as Monday on Tuesday. Skies will be partly cloudy in the morning and then mostly sunny for your Tuesday afternoon. Skies will be clear on Wednesday and temperatures will continue to top out in the mid 60's in the valley. A low pressure system dropping to the south off the coast of California will bring more clouds into our region on Thursday and Friday but the potential for showers is expected to stay to our South. Temperatures will warm back into the high 60's to low 70's in the valley by Friday afternoon and will stay in that same range on Saturday.

The setup for next weekend looks somewhat similar to what we just experience this last weekend. Current models are showing a low pressure area tracking into the Pacific Northwest on Saturday and then dropping south late Saturday night into Sunday. The latest models are showing a decent chance for showers dropping into northern California late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Modest showers and temperatures cooling back down to around average are currently projected in your Sunday forecast.
