Redding, Chico & Red Bluff

POSTED: 8:08 AM Jan 03 2014   UPDATED: 8:11 AM Jan 03 2014

Valley highs will warm to the mid to upper 60s this afternoon under mostly sunny skies.  North winds will pick up overnight and into Saturday.

An 8-10mb Medford-Red Bluff northerly gradient will develop tonight behind today's weak cold front.

Overnight winds will likely make for a "warm" Saturday morning  for the western and northern tip of the valley floor.

Valley highs, given the winds and warmer start, will be closer to the low 70s tomorrow.

Winds should begin to relax by Sunday afternoon.

A weak system will break down the ridge Tuesday and Wednesday.  At this point this will be mainly a mountain event.  There is a slight chance a few showers could make it down to the valley floor.
