Cooling down a bit this week

It was another hot day around the North State, with Valley highs well into the 90's... Redding hit 100. A disturbance moving through the Pacific Northwest will break high pressure down a little, which will lead to a slight cooldown in our temperatures over the next couple of days. High pressure will regain strength Friday, and our temperatures will warm right back on up.

Behind the passage of this disturbance to our north, surface high pressure will build into the Pacific Northwest. That will push some air southward, kicking up a bit of a north breeze in the Valley, just 5 to 10 mph. That's a drying wind for us, and will lower relative humidities into the single digits Wednesday & Thursday afternoon... watch for high fire danger then. Light southerly breezes will return this weekend.
