It doesn't look like you'll be needing an umbrella or heavy jacket across Northern California any time soon. Warm, dry, and breezy conditions are ahead for the start of your work week, and fire danger is going to be elevated today. We do not have any watches or warnings in place, but the low humidity, gusty North winds, and above average temperatures will all continue to be a concern for fire danger. Skies are mostly clear for the start of your Monday and will stay sunny today. Temperatures have dipped into the high 40's to 50's in the valley overnight, and into the 20's to 30's in the mountains this morning. You may want an extra layer for your way out the door, but you'll also want to make sure you'll be comfortable in the warmer temperatures this afternoon. Winds will be up to 20mph out of the North, with gusts up to 35mph along ridgetops. Humidity will dip into the 10 to 20 percent range this afternoon, which is extremely dry for this time of year. High temperatures are projected to top out in the high 70's to low 80's in the valley today, and in the 50's to 60's in the mountains this afternoon.

Not much is changing in your Tuesday forecast, but winds will not be as strong. Conditions look pleasant and warm for voters heading to the polls on Tuesday. Low temperatures may be a few degrees cooler than today, but high temperatures will be in the same range on Tuesday afternoon. There will be a very modest dip in temperatures on Wednesday, pushing highs in the valley back down into the mid 70's which is still above average for this time of year. Temperatures will stay in the mid to high 70's in the valley from Wednesday through the weekend, and skies will stay sunny to mostly sunny during that time. Showers are not expected to return over the next 7 days.

We head into the holiday weekend on a slightly cooler than average note, but that will change quickly on the 4th of July and on Sunday with more heat and stronger breezes coming.
