High pressure still holding over our area and temperatures today will be warmer with some areas in the north valley in the upper 80s to near 90.   The low pressure area shown on this morning's satellite picture (below) out to our west, is moving northeastward.   The southern end of this system will bring some clouds to the north state Tuesday with a few showers and thunderstorms over the foothills and mountains with a slight chance of a thunderstorm in the north end of the valley. 

Wednesday high pressure will rebuild along and over the west coast (see map below).   Wednesday through the weekend looks mostly sunny with temperatures warming to 8 to 12 degrees above normal by the weekend.  Gusty north winds will occur Friday through midday Sunday.
