Storm Tracker Forecast: Warm & dry Wednesday ahead

We'll be staying very warm and dry on Wednesday, but the potential for showers is creeping back into your extended forecast!

Posted: Feb 11, 2020 6:07 PM

Very warm temperatures, sunny skies, and gusty north winds continued across northern California today. Sustained winds have been up to around 20mph today and gusts have been as strong as 30mph. Winds are expected to diminish tonight and we are expecting lighter winds for the remainder of your work week. High temperatures ended up well above average again today. Valley areas topped out in the mid 70's, and mountain areas ended up in the 50's to 60's. Those values are around 10 to 15 degrees above average for this time of year. Skies will be clear to mostly clear tonight, and temperatures will stay mild for the start of your Wednesday. Valley and foothill areas are projected to dip into the mid 40's overnight, while mountain areas end up in the mid 20's to low 30's for the start of your Wednesday morning. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny in most areas through the day on Wednesday and winds will be out of the North to around 10 to 15mph. Portions of the Northern Mountains will have the potential for fog in the mornign and then partly cloudy skies for your afternoon. Temepratures will end up in the high 60's to low 70's in the valley on Wednesday and mountain areas will top out in the 50's to low 60's.

An area of low pressure passing through to our North will result in a modest drop in high temperatures late this week and will bring a slight chance for showers to mainly mountain areas late Thursday into early Friday. Mostly dry weather is expected on Friday and temperatures will stay a little above average for this time of year. Valley areas will top out in the mid 60's on Thursday and Friday, while mountain areas end up in the 40's to 50's.

A second area of low pressure will track into the Pacific Northwest and then drop to the South and East as we head through your weekend. The latest models are giving us a continuing drop in temperatures and the potential for showers returning late in the day on Saturday. The best chance for showers will be in higher elevations, but we now have a decent chance for at least a little light precipitation in the valley late Saturday through early Sunday. Snow levels will range down to around 5500'. As the low pressure trough passes to our East strong Northerly winds will develop across Northern California. This next wind event does not look like it will be as strong as the one we were just dealing with, but potential for gusts up to around 40mph in some areas cannot be ruled out. Models are currently split on what to expect for the start of next week.
