After a couple of days of low-humidity warmth, the added moisture in the air today made it feel considerably less comfortable. This is also the warmest of recent days, with highs in the mid- and upper 80s. A weak cold front is on the way. It won’t do a whole lot, but it might deliver a few raindrops as it passes, and it sets the stage for a nice Tuesday.

Tomorrow (Tuesday): It will be another sun-filled day. Temperatures will mainly be in the mid-80s for highs. With dew points falling back into the 50s, humidity will be less noticeable than today. Winds will be out of the northwest around 10 mph, with higher gusts.

Pollen update: Mold spores and weed pollen are both moderate/high. Tree and grass pollens are moderate.

California rain: Much-needed rain continues to fall on Northern California and surrounds. Widespread 1-2 inch totals have been tallied from near the San Francisco Bay area and northward toward the Oregon border, with some spots picking up more than that.

Additional heavy totals have been found in the mountains in and around the Sierra Nevada, where additional heavy rainfall is likely today. While the rain is beneficial overall, it may cause debris flows in and around recent burn scars.

There’s even some snow at the highest elevations.
