Showers will taper off across Northern Calfiornia by Monday afternoon as a frontal system moves south and east of the area.

High pressure will bring a return of dry weather along with milder temperatures for the rest of the week. Breezy northerly winds are likely Tuesday.

Satellite and radar imagery showed the frontal band is finally on the move toward the south and east as the upper trough nears the coast.

Light showers were in the valley and was as far south as Stockton, and the back edge of precip now extends from around Yreka to Weaverville to west of Ukiah.

The rain is forecasted to end between 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. in Sacramento and by early afternoon in the northern Sierray.
