.DISCUSSION...
EXPECT BREEZY WEST-NORTHWEST WINDS ACROSS THE AREA THIS AFTERNOON
AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT WHICH WILL MOVE IN FROM THE NORTH TONIGHT.
TEMPERATURES WILL RUN AROUND 10 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL TODAY...AND
AROUND 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL ON TUESDAY. WINDS OVERNIGHT WILL
BECOME STRONGER ALONG EAST-FACING MOUNTAIN SLOPES AS AN INVERSION
SETS UP. WINDS ON TUESDAY WILL REMAIN BREEZY OUT OF THE NORTH...
BUT RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES WILL REMAIN ABOVE 20 PERCENT... WITH
SOME SCATTERED SNOW SHOWERS POSSIBLE IN THE SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS
AS WELL. TEMPERATURES WILL VERY SLOWLY WARM BACK UP AS A TROUGH OF
LOW PRESSURE ALOFT REMAINS OVER THE AREA THROUGH MOST OF THE WEEK.
UPPER LEVEL RIDGING WILL BRING WARMER TEMPERATURES BACK TO THE
AREA BY CHRISTMAS DAY.
