Sunny skies are returning to all of Northern today, and the warming trend will continue. Today may end up being the most comfortable day of our extended forecast. We are starting out with clear skies this morning, and the lack of clouds has helped temperatures to become a little cooler early today. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's to 50's in the valley this morning, and in the 20's to 30's in mountain areas early today. Winds are projected to be up to 15mph out of the North this afternoon, but are mostly light this morning. In your Allergy Report, trees continue to be the big contributor to allergy sufferers today, while grass, weeds, and mold stay in the low range. Temperatures are projected to climb into the mid 80's in the valley, and in to the mid 60's to mid 70's in the mountains. Humidity will dip to as low as 10 percent again today. The low humidity paired with the warmer temperatures and moderate North winds will result in moderate fire danger this afternoon. Please check with county officials before you do any outdoor burning today.
The National Weather Service is still calling for a chance for Sierra showers tonight, but that doesn't look likely in the latest model run. Looks like we will more than likely just get a few clouds brushing across the mountains this evening. Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Thursday. The warming trend now looks to continue through Saturday. Some clouds will return to the region on Friday, but just enough to make us mostly sunny as opposed to sunny. Valley areas will be in the mid 80's for the end of the week, and mountain areas will be in the high 60's to high 70's.
Looks like Saturday will be the warmest day of this week, with valley areas topping out in the mid to high 80's. Latest outlook is calling for a slight chance for coastal showers on Saturday, but not much else. Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy on Saturday in most areas. Looks like a very modest drop in high temperatures will be in store for Sunday, but conditions will stay sunny and dry. Another warming trend will then return for the start of next week, leaving valley areas in the high 80's on Monday and Tuesday. A cooling trend will be possible after that, but it's still a little too far out to forecast specifics.
