The trend of above average temperatures, sunny skies, and gusty North winds will continue across Northern California for your election day. Skies are clear to start your morning, and will stay sunny through the day. Temperatures have become much cooler in some mountain areas overnight, but valley temperatures are in the same range as yesterday morning. Temperatures have dipped into the 40's to 40's in the valley overnight, and into the teens to 30's in the mountains this morning. You'll probably be wanting that jacket on your way out the door if your in a higher elevation area, but you won't be needing an umbrella today. Winds will be out of the North up to around 20mph, with gusts up to 35mph in some higher elevations this afternoon. Humidity will dip into dangerously low levels again later today and is projected to end up in the 9 to 20 percent range in the valley. High temperatures are projected to end up in the low 80's in the valley this afternoon, and into the 50's to 60's in the mountains later today.

The sunny and dry weather will continue for the remainder of the week. Temperatures will cool by a few degrees over the next couple of days, but will stay around 10 degrees above average for this time of year. That leaves valley areas in the mid to high 70's for Wednesday and Thursday. Winds will pick back up out of the North on Wednesday night and will stay strong through the day on Thursday. A Fire Weather Watch has been issued from Wednesday evening through Friday morning for the entirety of the valley and portions of the Sierra. Winds could gust up to 50mph during that time and humidity will stay dangerously low. Fire danger will be in the critical range. Winds will then slack on Friday and temperatures will warm back into the high 70's to low 80's in the valley. Looks like more of the same on the way for your weekend. Mostly sunny skies with low to mid 80's in the valley. We'll stay sunny, dry, and warm for the start of next week.
