Temperatures falling with the chance for showers Monday morning.

Our area of high pressure which brought such warm weather the past several days is shifting eastward.  As that happens temperatures will fall back to nearer their normal levels.  Most areas will still be about 5-10° above normal, so its not like it’ll be cold out there, but we won’t see the record  - or near record – highs of last week.  As the high moves eastward it will be replaced by an ocean low from the west.  That system is generally a weak one and won’t bring a huge amount of rain to the northstate but it’ll bring just enough to whet the whistles of the mountains to our north and west.  There could be a shower or two that makes it into the valley, but for the most part it’ll be dry with increased cloud cover coming for the beginning of next week.

Later in the week an inside slider will push to our east.  That will kick the winds up and bring more threats for sprinkles in the mountains.  Following that it mostly levels out with high pressure returning to the region.
