Another nice day in the NorthState, showers possible in the mountain.

High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than yesterday, but we’ll still make it into the low 80s.  Cooler air aloft will keep temperatures lower today while allowing for northern California to keep its wonderful sunshine.  There is a chance for some scattered showers in the mountains, mostly to the north and west of the valley so expect possible showers for northern Shasta, Trinity and Siskiyou Counties. 

Monday brings more instability, and a better chance for widespread rain showers.  Temperatures will reflect the increased moisture in the air and the increased cloud cover and will be in the low to mid 70s.  The showers and thunderstorms will mainly be the product of diurnal heating, so more sunshine will produce more showers and storms.  Our best chance time wise of seeing those showers and storms is in the afternoon to early evening on Monday and the morning to early afternoon on Tuesday.

Tuesday afternoon onwards high pressure builds in and starts to clear things out.  Temperatures will also start to rise once again as skies clear and warmer air returns.  That means from Tuesday onwards we’ll slowly be adding 2-5° to our highs until Friday and Saturday when highs will peak in the low to mid 90s.
