Thundershowers are possible across parts of Solano County early this week as the remnants of Tropical Storm Hilary continue to move through the region.
The storm made landfall over the weekend in a sparsely populated area of Baja California, Mexico before moving through Southern California, dumping several inches of rain on the greater Los Angeles area, Palm Springs and the Mojave Desert.
Much of the immediate storm system is now in Nevada, but the outer bands have splintered off and are now making their way through parts of the Sierra Nevada and eastern California.
Locally, this means the Sacramento Valley could see isolated thunderstorms from Monday evening into early Tuesday morning. Forecasters with the National Weather Service say there is a 15 to 25 percent confidence of an isolated thunderstorm in the local area.
Any isolated thunderstorm could bring frequent lightning, erratic wind and small hail, according to forecasters. Storms will likely be brief, if they do develop.
Otherwise, the remnants of Tropical Storm Hilary will help bring seasonably cool temperatures to the region, with overnight lows across Solano County in the low- to mid-60s.
For the rest of the week, forecasters expect a return to summer weather, with highs reaching the upper-90s — and even 100 degrees in parts of Solano County — by midweek before falling to the mid-90s for the weekend, with plenty of sun from Tuesday onward.
