Windy across the valley through tomorrow, warm weekend ahead

We have a Wind Advisory in place through tonight at 8 p.m. and we can expect Wednesday to be gusty as well, but by this weekend we'll be sunny and warm in the valley, with some light mountain showers.

We're wrapping up this Tuesday with a wind Advisroy for the valley.

We have high pressure building behind an upper level trough, so plan on gusty northerly winds into this evening.

We're looking at winds out of the North at 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph.

Keep in mind, this is not a great evening to be out for a walk - lookout for branches down along the roads, possible power outages, loose or unsecured objects may be blown around, and difficult driving conditions, especially for small cars and high profile vehicles.

As for the rest of your forecast, showers have ended for the most part over the valley and Sierra.

Breezy north winds will continue Wednesday. Gusts of around 25-35 mph can be expected again on Wednesday afternoon.

A "slider" system will drop down from the north on Thursday bringing scattered showers to the mountains that will continue into Friday.

The remainder of the region is expected to remain dry.

Good news for your outdoor weekend plans - high pressure ridging on Saturday will bring generally dry and warm weather, with high temperatures in the Valley in the mid 70s!

Again a slight chance of rain Saturday night over the northern mountains, spreading into the Sierra on Sunday.

Rain and snow amounts are expected to be light.

A somewhat stronger system might drag some rain into the valley on Monday into Tuesday.

It wasn't as hot for northern California today, but temperatures still reached seasonable summer levels and more thunderstorms sprung over our eastern counties. After one more seasonable day, hotter weather will return to our area.
