Sun To Clouds To Wind To Rain Showers Ahead | By: Eric McCormick

In a very brief sense anyway, the title is how the weather will generally play out through Tuesday across the North Coast. Our Sunday featured showery times and then sunny ones, and many folks caught a very nice sunset. Here in the late evening, we are cooling off quickly, and it’ll be a chilly night under partly clear skies and light winds. Frost advisories are out for Trinity and Mendocino Counties, with temps in the 30s in the valleys. We’ll hold in the 40s across Humboldt and Del Norte Counties. Through the night, skies will stay partly clear in most spots, with some very patchy fog possible.

Monday looks like it will be a fairly nice day all things considered, with partly cloudy skies after a cool start. A front will begin to approach by later in the afternoon, which will build clouds, and eventually bring a small shower chance by the late afternoon & evening for the area. A few models bring in a shower or two closer to the noon hour, but I am leaning away from those chances. Temperatures will be seasonal, in the 50s to near 70° inland.

That mentioned front will slowly work through the area Monday night and into Tuesday, and this will bring a gloomy and showery day across the area. Winds will be breezy across the area in addition, and temperatures will struggle to get out of the 50s area wide.

After a decently damp Tuesday, we will see improving weather for the second half of the week, as high pressure develops across the Pacific Ocean. That area of high pressure will yield drier conditions for Wednesday and beyond, and inland areas will begin to warm nicely. A few late week inland shower chances will likely develop, but those chances are low for Friday and next weekend. There is a hint that even a low coastal shower chance may return by Sunday and Memorial Day, but I’ve kept the forecast dry at the moment.

Enjoy the week, and check back again soon!
