Storm Tracker Forecast: Staying very warm & dry on Friday

Very warm and dry weather will persist into your Friday. We'll be staying dry this weekend, but cooler temperatures and gusty winds will be returning.

Posted: Feb 6, 2020 5:54 PM

The ridge of high pressue off the West Coast in the Pacific was the main driving factor in your forecast today and will continue to be the key to your forecast on Friday. Dry weather and well above average temperatures will continue for the end of your work week. Skies will be clear tonight and will stay sunny tomorrow. Temperatures will dip into the high 30's to low 40's in the valley overnight, and mountain areas will dip into the 20's to 30's for the start of your Friday morning. Winds will continue to be up to around 10mph out of the North. High temperatures will continue to trend well above average on Friday but the latest projections keep them slightly cooler than Thursday. Mid to high 60's can be expected in the valley and mountain areas will end up in the 50's to low 60's.

The dry weather is expected to persist as we move into your weekend on Saturday, but temperatures will dip back to around average for this time of year. High temperatures will end up in the low 60's in the valley on Saturday and mountain areas will end up in the 40's. Breezy North winds will begin to develop on Saturday afternoon and will become stronger as we head into your Sunday. Sustained winds could reach 25mph out of the North on Sunday. Gusts are projected to reach up to around 40mph in the valley and Sierra locations can expect gusts up to 50mph. Winds will be strong enough to down trees into roadways and powerlines. Travel impacts and power outages will be possible. We'll also have the potential for showers in the Sierra, but the latest models keep that to the South of our region. The cooler temperatures, gusty winds, and slight chance for mountain showers will all be courtesy of a trough of low pressure tracking down into Nevada from the Pacific Northwest through the weekend. Dry and warmer weather is projected to return as we head through the start to middle of next week.
