Northern California Forecast: Warm Wednesday, temperatures to drop again later this week

BUILD POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS. TAKE YOURSELF OUTSIDE NOW WITH THIS VIEW OF DOWNTOWN SACRAMENTO FROM LIVECOPTER3 AND YOU CAN SEE THERE’S A LIGHT BREEZE BLOWING AT LEAST ABOVE. LET’S GO TO THE LIST OF METEOROLOGISTS HERE FROM TAMARA BERG BELOW WITH A LOOK AT OUR FORECAST THIS MORNING. YEAH. YOU KNOW SOME OF THOSE UPPER LEVEL WINDS. WE HAVE A WEST NORTHWEST FLOW RIGHT NOW. BUT AROUND SURFACE LEVEL. SO WHEN YOU’RE OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR THIS MORNING, THOSE WINDS ARE CALM ENOUGH TO LIGHT UP. IT’S A FRESH START. So grab your jacket and sunglasses. YOU’LL USE THEM IF YOU’RE GOING OUT, MAYBE FOR YOUR MORNING DRIVE, AND MAYBE YOUR DRIVE TAKES YOU TO LAKE TAHOE. BEAUTIFUL VIEW HERE THIS MORNING AS WE LOOK ACROSS THE SIERRA PEAKS AND HERE FROM THE SOUTH COAST, LOOKING TOWARDS THE WEST COAST, THE SKIES ARE CLEAR. TEMPERATURES CURRENTLY ARE IN THE 30S FOR THE MOUNTAINS AND AROUND THE TRUCKEE BASIN. RIGHT NOW WE’RE IN THE MID 50S IN THE VALLEY, 55 IN STOCKTON, 56 IN SACRAMENTO. SO YOUR VALLEY PLANNER FOR THIS WEDNESDAY WILL BE JUST AS WARM, IF NOT MAYBE A DEGREE OR TWO WARMER THAN YESTERDAY. SO TEMPERATURE AT LUNCH TIME NEAR 80. HIGH TODAY ABOUT 90. AROUND OUR SACRAMENTO VALLEY AND TEMPERATURES RETURNED TO THE MID 70’S AROUND 9:00 TONIGHT. IN THE FILLS TODAY, THE FORECAST FOCUS IS ON SUN, LIGHT WINDS, MID 70’s F AT LUNCH TIME AND AUBURN SONORA AND PLACERVILLE WITH DAYTIME HIGHS MOVING INTO THE LOWER 80’S. AND TODAY AROUND THE MOUNTAINS, A COLD START GIVES WAY TO A NICE AND PLEASANT AFTERNOON. WE ARE SITTING IN THE 60S F AROUND 3 PM, RETURNING INTO THE UPPER 40S F AROUND 9:00 PM. GREAT VIEW AS WE LOOK AT OUR SKIES ACROSS THE REGION, YOU CAN SEE THE ACTIVE WEATHER AGAIN PLAYING JUST EAST OF THE WATERFALLS. AND WE’RE LOOKING AT REALLY QUIET CONDITIONS HERE, WITH MAYBE SOME HIGH CLOUDS GRIMING THE SKY. So today it will have that milky look in the mountains. BUT APART FROM THAT, WHAT WE WILL BE WATCHING FOR IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS IS THE LOWER TEMPERATURES. AS COOLER AIR BEGINS TO DOWN FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH. SO WE HAVE THESE SYSTEMS, THESE WAVES GOING PASSING. AND AS SATURDAY GETS A LITTLE CLOSER TO US, NOT ONLY IS IT GOING TO BRING US SOME CLOUDS AND MAYBE A COUPLE OF SHOWERS IN THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS, IT’S ALSO GOING TO BRING SOME SMALL CHANGES AT LEAST FOR THE START OF THE YEAR. HOLIDAY WEEKEND. THEN THAT SYSTEM GETS OUT OF HERE VERY FAST, AND THEN LOOKING INTO MONDAY, THE WARM AIR STARTS TO RECOVER AS THE HIGH PRESSURE EXPANDS AND LOOK AT THE FORECAST HERE. AS YOU WILL NOTICE, THE TEMPERATURES. IT WILL GO FROM 90 F TODAY TO 80 F ON FRIDAY. And we’re going to back up even to 70 guys, 75 sounds like we’re going to be in San Diego most of Saturday. AND THEN SUNDAY AND MONDAY WILL START WARMING UP. COME BACK A LITTLE WARMER THAN AVERAGE THERE. As we approach the holidays. YES, BUT VERY NICE, BUT A GOOD STEP FORWARD. YEAH. ALRIGHT.
