Storm Tracker Forecast: Staying very warm & windy on Tuesday

Gusty winds and well above average temperatures continue on Tuesday. A modest cooling trend and the potential for mountain showers will return late this week.

Posted: Feb 10, 2020 6:02 PM

It was a very sunny and warm day across northern California, but the biggest impact continued to be gusty winds across the region. Sustained winds topped 20mph in many parts of the valley and gusts reached up to 35mph out of the Northeast in Red Bluff this afternoon. Redding also had gusts of over 30mph earlier in the afternoon, but the remainder of the valley had gusts below 30mph recorded today. The Wind Advisory has now been extended through 10am Tuesday morning for portions of the Sierra and Cascades. Foothill areas will be out of the Advisory until 10pm tonight but it will go back into effect at that time and last through 10am Tuesday morning as well. Susatained winds could reach 30mph in portions of the mountains tonight and gusts could top out up to around 50mph out of the Northeast. Valley areas will still have sustained winds up to around 20mph through tomorrow, with gusts up to around 30mph. Temperatures will dip into the low to mid 40's in the valley for the start of your Tuesday and mountain areas will dip into the 20's to 30's. Skies will be sunny through the day and high temperatures will stay well above average across all areas of the north state. Valley high temperatures will top out in the high 60's to low 70's, and mountain areas will end up in the 50's to 60's.

The trend of very warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies will continue on Wednesday but winds are not expected to be an issue. Most locations will have 10 to 15mph winds out of the North in your Wednesday forecast. High temperatures will be 1 to 3 degrees cooler than Tuesday, but that is still well above average for this time of year. A very modest drop in temperatures and a slight chance for mostly mountain showers will return to northern California on Thursday. The showers are currently projected to be limited to portions of the Sierra and Cascades, but there will also be a slight chance for a light shower falling in the Northern end of the valley. Sunny skies, and dry weather are ahead for your Valentines day on Friday. Temperatures will finally be down to around average for this time of year for your Friday afternoon, which puts valley areas back in the low 60's.

A wet and cooler weather system is expected to pass through to our North from Friday evening through your weekend. The most widespread impacts to the north state will be temperatures being kept around average for this time of year, and another round of gusty North winds across our region late Saturday through early Monday. This next wind event currently does not look to be as strong as the one we're currently dealing with on Monday, but we are also still a few days out, so that is subject to change. The potential for light showers currently looks limited to higher elevations and the northern end of the valley. There will be a slight chance for showers in the mid valley as well. That is also subject to change as current models still showcase a lot of disparity.
