Posted: Nov 14, 2019 6:31 PM

Skies are staying cloudy and temperatures are continuing to cool for the end of your work week. Temperatures topped out in the high 60's to low 70's in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas mostly ended up in the mid 50's to low 60's. That was still above average for this date, but only by around 5 or so degrees. Temperatures will mostly stay mild overnight tonight. Valley areas will dip into the mid 40's and mountain areas will end up in the high 20's to high 30's. There will be a slight chance for showers brushing across the Coastal Range and into the Northern Mountains overnight into early Friday morning, but any chance for wet weather diminishes as it gets closer to the valley. Skies will be Mostly cloudy for the start of your Friday and then partly cloudy for your afternoon. Temperatures are projected to be very similar to what we had outside on Thursday. Valley areas will end up in the high 60's to low 70's on Friday afternoon, and mountain areas will top out in the mid 50's to low 60's.

High pressure will build back into our region this weekend and that will restult in a substantial warming trend and a much dryer airmass. Lower humidity and somewhat stronger winds will result in higher concerns for fire danger on Saturday. Humidity will likely dip into the 20 to 35 percent range on Saturday afternoon and winds could top out at around 25mph out of the North. High temperatures will end up back in the mid to high 70's on Saturday afternoon and will then climb into the 70's to mid 80's on Sunday. Areas of Red Bluff and Redding are projected to see high temperatures in the low to mid 80's on Sunday and that could mean new record high temperatures in both of those cities for that date. Mountain areas will end up in the mid 60's to low 70's over the weekend.

High pressure will start to break down early next week and another cooling trend will return to northern California. Valley areas can expect high temperatures to top out in the mid 70's to low 80's on Monday and then to fall into the high 60's to low 70's on Tuesday. High temperatures will continue to top out in the mid to high 60's in the valley for the middle of next week, while mountain areas end up in the 50's to 60's. Models are hinting at a chance for some wet weather returning to portions of Northern California during the middle of next week, with the best chance for showers resting in higher elevations.
