Monday looks sunny and warm once again. It will be breezy at times with the dry conditions elevated fire hazards are once again something to watch for. Monday's highs in the Valley will be in the 70's to near 80 which is up to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year.
Finally the weather changes this week. Late Monday a weak cold front approaches California and we'll get some clouds ahead of the system and cooler temperatures. The system passes overhead on Tuesday but there will be little precipitation for us in Northern California. The coast will get a few showers on Tuesday and light and scattered rain and snow showers will develop in the mountains on Tuesday night and Wednesday. The brunt of that storm will move into Southern California where thet will get a good soaking, much needed rain for them. The Southern Sierra Nevada will also get snow above 6000 feet--and up to a foot of snow is expected.
Behind the system we will be cooler but we'll also have gusty winds developing over northern California the middle of next week, and humidity is expected to be once again very low. The stronger winds mixed with the already dry fuels will result in elevated concerns for fire danger Tuesday-Thursday once again. We are under a Fire Weather Watch due to the expected conditions. Temperatures the rest of the week should stay in the 60's to near 70 for the Valley.
