We have a Wind Advisory from 10 AM to 10 PM for the valley, including the cities of Redding, Red Bluff, Chico, Oroville, Marysville, Yuba City and down to Sacramento.

The strongest winds will pick up in the afternoon and early evening.

Expect north winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph - Gusts up to 45 mph will be possible in the Coastal Range.

Expect blowing debris and downed tree branches possible.

This means hazardous driving conditions for small cars and high profile vehicles.

Secure any loose holiday decorations.

Mainly dry through end of the week except for some isolated mountain showers today and Sunday

Breezy north wind today and early next week.

Dry weather prevails over the area, as an upper high has built over the North State behind Monday's storm system now over the Great Basin.

With the departing low pressure, the gradient tightens and we'll see breezy north winds developing over the Sacramento Valley and Coastal range.

Isolated wind gusts to 40 mph will possible.

A weak system passing north of the area Thursday or Friday across Oregon may bring isolated light showers over high mountain elevations, but no major impacts expected.

The increased winds will keep enough mixing to prevent fog formation.

The extended forecast looks mainly dry, with forecast high temperatures a little above normal and low temperatures a few degrees below normal.

We have a slight chance of light showers over the southern Cascades Sunday.

Upper level ridging with northerly flow will keep the weather dry through the middle of next week.

Breezy northerly winds are possible at times.
