After topping out at 62 yesterday in Redding, we will continue to push the mercury closer to the mid 60s for the valley today. Expect the sunny skies and above normal afternoon highs through this weekend.
High pressure now over the Eastern Pacific will slowly move over the Northstate the next few days allowing us to warm back up to the mid to upper 60’s by the middle of the week. Some of us could even be flirting with the 70’s especially by Thursday. The same ridge of high pressure will start to break down by the weekend but our temperatures will still be in the low 60’s.
The long range forecast models are hinting at a chance for showers by the middle of next week but the confidence in that solution is fairly low as we are seeing a lot of inconsistency. For now it looks dry at least through Tuesday of next week with a slight chance for showers by next Wednesday. However, I wouldn’t plan anything around this just yet.
