Cold winds, rain expected through Friday

Cold winds, rain expected through Friday

It's only going to get colder! News10 meteorologist Monica Woods said a powerful cold front is just offshore getting ready to move through the area Tuesday afternoon. Expect strong winds and heavy rain later in the day.

A Wind Advisory is in place for the Valley until 6 p.m. with gusts up to 45 mph.

Valley highs will be near 60 Tuesday then drop to the 50s Wednesday. The cold front will also create an unstable atmosphere on Wednesday with a chance of Valley thunderstorms. Some of those storms could contain some small hail.

Rain showers will continue on and off through Thursday and Friday. Most areas will see up to 1-2" of rain by Friday.

Sunshine here for the weekend; Rain rolls in Monday

Sunshine here for the weekend; Rain rolls in Monday

Sunshine is here to stay...at least for the weekend, so enjoy it while you can! News10 meteorologist Mellisa Paul says major weather changes are headed our way starting on Valentine's Day.

Saturday will be sunny and mild with highs in the mid 60s and lows in the upper 30s, making for very pleasant weather. Sunday we'll start to see some changes with more clouds rolling in.

Paul said a block in the jet stream, or storm track, will break down and allow a flood of moisture to come ashore early next week. Monday will start dry but showers may develop by the evening. Rain will last on and off Tuesday before steadier rain clouds move in for Wednesday. Showers will also linger into Thursday and Friday.

Whipping winds are gone; Nice weather sets in Wednesday

Whipping winds are gone; Nice weather sets in Wednesday

Pleasant weather sets up once again with lighter winds and sunny skies Wednesday. Sunshine will stay strong across the Valley as high pressure remains in control across the area right into the upcoming weekend, according to News10 meteorologist Mellisa Paul.

Highs today will be in the lower 60s. Clear skies overnight and the lack of wind will allow temperatures to drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s, so frost is a threat for early morning hours Thursday. Take action to protect delicate vegetation.

The good news with Tuesday’s wind is the blustery weather may have dried the atmosphere enough to keep fog from setting up early Thursday.

So long 70-degree weather

In the local forecast, all good things must come to an end and that goes for the 70 degree temperatures.

A shift in the jet stream will allow temperatures to cool during the next few days. Monday's highs will range from the mid to upper 60s under mostly sunny skies, according to News10 meteorologist Darla Givens.

Winds in the valley will be around 10 degrees. Stronger winds are expected in the Sierra and there is a Lake Wind Advisory in effect for the Tahoe Basin from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. Monday. Givens said winds will be from the west at 10 to 20 miles per hour with gusts to 30 miles per hour.

A trough makes it way out of the Gulf of Alaska later in the week. Moisture will be limited, but cool temperatures will linger.

Sunshine is ahead in the forecast through the weekend. Expect some fog to return Friday and Saturday mornings, but the sun should dominate during the daytime, according to News10's meteorologist Mellisa Paul.

Highs will stay in the low to mid 60s through Sunday. A huge fair weather, high pressure system remains anchored across the entire West Coast, literally protecting us from any organized storms for the next seven to 10 days, said Paul.

There are no signs of major changes in the overall weather pattern for nearly the next two weeks. In addition to the forecasted sunny skies, the amount of daily sunshine is now increasing by over two minutes per day. Thursday the sun will set at its latest time since early November -- 5:30 p.m.

Another foggy Friday forecast for the valley but sunshine for the hills

SACRAMENTO, CA -- More fog will give us a "soupy" start Friday and will lead to hazy afternoon conditions. A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 1 p.m. throughout the valley and toward the Delta.

News10 Meteorologist Monica Woods says the fog will slowly thin to a haze a bit later on in the day. Highs will only reach the low to upper 50s.

Wood burning is prohibited in Sacramento County.

Woods says the Foothills and Sierra will see ample sunshine through Friday. Highs will be in the 60s for the hills and 50s for the Sierra.

Fog will be a little less noticeable this weekend. Woods says Saturday will start with some patchy fog in the valley then partly cloudy skies are expected through the day as a weak disturbance heads inland.

Rain and snow are expected Sunday.

Dense fog advisory in effect until 11 a.m.

Dense fog advisory in effect until 11 a.m.

A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 11 a.m. with visibility down to near 1/4 mile or less through the valley.

The fog may take all morning to burn off, especially in the Northern San Joaquin Valley. Hazy skies for the rest of the valley Wednesday afternoon. Highs will warm to near 60 in areas where the sun breaks through the clouds, but in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties we'll have highs in the mid 50s.

Wood burning is prohibited in Stanislaus County Wednesday and Sacramento County has a Stage 1 No Burn Day with no burning unless exempt.

A big, sprawling area of high pressure located all across the West Coast is in control of our weather. This high pressure area is not like a normal high pressure system due to the clouds trapped beneath it...this is what we call a "dirty high".

A weak weather system approaches the coast on Saturday bringing more clouds and a slight chance of showers for the Sierra.
