Mostly dry and slightly cooler conditions are ahead for your Monday across Northern California. We'll have a slight chance for some active weather in the Sierra and foothills, but the majority of our region is projected to stay dry today. Skies are mostly clear for the start of your Monday and temperatures are mild this morning. Valley areas have dipped into the 50's to low 60's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the 30's to 40's this morning. Winds will be up to 15mph out of the North today. There is a slight chance for some showers or a thunderstorm popping up in the Sierra this afternoon, with the best chance South of Plumas County. Temperatures will top out in the low 80's in the valley today, and in the 60's to 70's in the mountains this afternoon. Mild weather is expected for your Monday evening.
We're expecting a nice drop in temperatures and a better chance for some active weather popping up in your Tuesday forecast. Temperatures will start out in the same range as today, but will end up around 5 degrees cooler for the afternoon. High temperatures are projected to top out in the mid 70's in the valley on Tuesday. Mountain areas will end up in the 50's to 60's on Tuesday afternoon. Showers and the potential for thunderstorms will be ahead for portions of the Sierra and Foothills on Tuesday afternoon. The best threat for active weather will be in areas of Plumas, Butte, and Tehama Counties. Active weather will subside on Tuesday evening, and we'll be dry on Wednesday. Temperatures will warm back into the high 70's on Wednesday afternoon and skies will be mostly sunny. A modest warming trend will be ahead for the end of the week, and valley areas will top out in the mid 80's on Friday. Looks like we can expect another modest cooling trend this weekend, and the potential for showers will return to some mountain areas. Timing and location on active weather is up in the air for now, but we'll get a much better idea of what to expect this weekend over the next few days.
