Rain and Thunder Possible Tonight Sunshine Starts Monday Afternoon

Published On: Mar 09 2014 08:13:23 PM CDT

Rain ends tonight, sunshine persists all week.

The mini atmospheric river (atmospheric creek?) will remain overhead for the next several hours, but tonight is its last night in northern California.  It will eventually move to our east pushed on by an upper level trough which will give just enough lift to keep the possibility for thunderstorms in the forecast.  Most of the storms will be in the wee hours of the morning so you could be woken up by a couple rumbles of thunder.  The storms will be done with by the morning commute and we’ll be in the process of clearing the skies out throughout most of Monday.

The rest of the week will be sunny and warm as high pressure builds in.  The clear skies will allow the sun to do its thing which will push temps into the low to mid 70s mid week and even into the low 80s by the weekend.  The biggest danger this week will be some gusty north winds on Tuesday as the high pushes in.  Expect gusts to push 30-35mph on Tuesday and potentially gust to near 20-25mph on Wednesday.
