Temperatures continue to fall tomorrow, showers possible.
The high pressure area that has given us our beautiful clear skies is starting to depart to our east. That will allow the clouds to return to northern California. As that happens our temperatures will fall and the threat of showers will increase. The best chance for showers will remain to be in the mountains to the west, but on Monday that chance will increase as the trough axis moves overhead. That will increase our chances for any showers on Monday some of which could be in the form of thunderstorms. Afterwards the trough departs to our east and our skies will slowly clear towards Wednesday and Thursday.
The impending trough will decrease the temperatures with more clouds and more moisture in the air. That means that instead of 10-15° above average we’ll be closer to 5-10° below average, at least for a day or so. Highs on Monday look like they’re going to be the coolest this week with some areas in the valley not breaking out of the 60s. As high pressure returns from the west the clouds will clear and those clearing skies will drag the temperatures up. By the end of the week we’ll see temperatures back into the mid 80s with abundant sunshine.
