A very welcome cooling trend is on the way to the north state! Temperatures are expected to be slightly cooler this afternoon, but a very significant drop in temperatures is ahead for the next 72 hours. Valley locations are starting out in the low to mid 60's this morning, and mountain areas have dipped into the low 40's to low 50's overnight. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the low to mid 90's for the valley, and into the 83 to 89 degree range in the higher elevations. Winds will be out of the South up to around 10mph this afternoon, and humidity values are expected to fall to around 20 percent again. The low humidity, and modest heat will continue to leave the region under moderate fire danger today.
Valley temperatures will fall into the 80's on Wednesday, and then into the high 70's to mid 80's on Thursday. Clouds will increase over the next 24 hours, and northern zones of the state can expect partly cloudy skies ahead. Winds will be stronger on Wednesday, and gusts could top 20mph out of the South. There will be a modest warm up on the way for the weekend. Valley areas will climb back into the mid 80's to low 90's on Saturday. The best chance for showers will return to the far northern zones of the state this weekend, but the wet weather will more than likely stay North of the Oregon border. I hope everyone is ready for some fall like weather to return to the region, and has a great Tuesday!
