Sunshine Friday but clouds roll in this weekend

Enjoy the sunshine while it's here! News10 meteorologist Mellisa Paul said clouds will increase and become partly cloudy by Friday evening, but highs for the day willl reach the upper 80s, possibly a degree or two above normal.

On Saturday, another system in the Pacific will start its move toward the coast. The area will see an increase in clouds with highs in the mid 70s to lows 60s, said Paul.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy with a chance of showers here and there, but sunshine at times. Highs will drop to the low 70s.

The start of the work week Monday will bring clear skies but a cooler air mass will only allow afternoon highs to reach the low 70s.

High wind warning issued in San Joaquin County

High wind warning issued in San Joaquin County

SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY - The National Weather Service has issued a high wind warning for northern San Joaquin County Wednesday. The warning was expected to remain in affect through 5 p.m. Thursday.

A stronger weather system will bring strong and gusty winds Wednesday night into Thursday. The winds are expected to be similar to the strong winds the area experienced last Saturday and Sunday morning. These conditions will result in difficult driving conditions and could possibly lead to numerous downed trees and power outages.

Southeast to south winds were expected to reach 20 to 35 mph with gusts up to 70 mph specifically in the Stockton and Modesto areas.

Loose objects outdoors should be tied down or brought inside and small animals should not be left outside.

Rain today, not so much tomorrow

Rain today, not so much tomorrow

Rain slowed in the Valley Monday with scattered showers and thunderstorms here and there. Highs were in the mid 50s.

The main rain event has shifted east giving us lingering showers today, but as it continues to move away conditions will likely dry-out further for Tuesday. Tuesday will have only a slight chance of light showers and will be mainly mostly cloudy. It won’t be until Tuesday evening and overnight that the next big system will impact the area. This will be another wet system; with wind gusts overnight Wednesday into early Thursday near 40mph.

The brief slow down in rain and snow for the next 24 hours or more should give some opportunity for high flowing rivers to recede slightly ahead of the next big rain maker.

Water levels are expected to rise on the lower San Joaquin River system. The rivers impacted will be the Tuolumne, Mokelumne, and Cosumnes.

Streams and creeks remain high with flooding possible on low-lying areas.

Fog rolls in for Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday

According to News10 meteorologist Monica Woods, fog will once again be present to start the day for Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The fog will begin to clear by midday for the valley. The foothills below about 1,000 feet will start with some fog and then clear midday.

Afternoon temperatures on Monday will be in the mid to upper 50s with overnight temps in the mid to upper 40s.

Burning is discouraged in Sacramento County and prohibited in Stanislaus County.

Less fog is ahead in the forecast though as a northwest wind begins to erode the low clouds.

Highs will warm to the low 60s for the rest of the week with mostly sunny skies through at least Friday.

The Sierra will stay dry and mild with highs in the 50s Monday and Tuesday then dropping to the 40s by Wednesday.
