More hot, and dry conditions ahead for your extended forecast, but today's high temperatures look to fall short of the region had yesterday. A Trough of Low Pressure passing through the Pacific Northwest will help to increase the Delta Breeze, and funnel cooler air towards the north state. Some high clouds will track through the far northern parts of California, but showers stay well North of the Oregon border. Valley temperatures have dipped into the mid 60's to low 70's overnight, and mountain areas have bottomed out in the low 40's to mid 50's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 90's in the valley, and into the mid 80's to low 90's in the higher elevations. Winds will be between 10 to 15mph out of the South, and humidity values will dip to between 10 to 20 percent.
The influence from the Trough tracking through the Pacific Northwest will keep Friday's temperatures close to this afternoon's, but hotter temperatures are ahead for Saturday. Valley locations will climb back into the high 90's to low triple digits on Saturday, before cooling back into the low to mid 90's on Sunday. Monday looks to be the coolest day of the extended forecast, with highs in the valley ranging from 91 to around 94 degrees. Hotter temperatures return on Wednesday as the valley climbs back into the high 90's to low triple digits. I hope everyone has a great Thursday!
