where slightly elevated easterly winds will continue through
sunset. Light snow showers will be possible in the Sacramento

lowlands today, with cooler temperatures and generally good to
very good vent rates. Winds will be light overnight. High pressure
will build in Tuesday and Wednesday with warming temperatures,
light winds, and min RHs decreasing to 12 to 15 percent. Vent
