An area of low pressure moving into the Northwest is bringing mostly cloudy skies to the Coast and high clouds inland this morning. Temperatures will start off mild, but trend about 10 degrees cooler throughout the afternoon because of this. A few light and isolated showers are likely along northern coastal sections, but measurable rain is unlikely.
Inland, skies will stay mostly sunny today and conditions will remain dry. Strong winds are likely into the afternoon hours and for this reason a fire weather warning will go into effect at noon for portions of Lake County and all of Modoc. This warning does NOT include Lakeview. Even so, be cautious of outdoor activities that could easily start a fire. Don’t drive over dry grass, use caution operating power tools outside, stow trailer chains properly and avoid yard work or welding near dry vegetation. This warning will expire at 8pm Thursday night.
Temperatures will continue to cool into Friday and at this point we could have a few showers travel into West Side Valleys. Again, these showers will be light and measurable rain is not very likely. The Basin & Northern California will remain dry. The weekend is shaping up very nicely and temperatures will be rebounding very quickly into Sunday. Father’s Day is looking fantastic across the board, with comfortable temperatures and sunny skies.
