Arnold and areas farther east along the Highway 4 corridor will see the same forecast, except slated to start earlier at 11 a.m.

Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected, but more is possible under thunderstorms.

Winds are expected to blow east in the daytime, mostly between 5 and 10 mph. AboveDorington in Calaveras County and above Pinecrest in Tuolumne County, winds could gust as high as 21 mph.

Winds are expected to blow southwest at night at about 5 to 8 mph.

High temperatures are expected in the mid- to upper 80s through the week, lowering Saturday to the low 80s and expected to dip Sunday into the high 70s.

Wednesday through Sunday are forecast sunny and clear, besides some minimal cloud cover Friday through Saturday night.
