Extremely hot temperatures are prompting the National Weather Service to issue an Excessive Heat Advisory for your Wednesday afternoon. Valley locations can expect the hottest day of the year for today's Farmcast. Temperatures in the valley are starting out in the mid 70's to low 80's and are projected to climb into the 110 to 115 degree range this afternoon. This heat leaves the entire population (not just sensative groups) in danger of health issues like heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Winds will be out of the Southwest to 10mph this afternoon, and humidity values will fall to around 10 percent. Your Wednesday morning sunrise is set for 5:43am, and sunset will be at 8:39pm.
Temperatures be a couple of degrees cooler on Thursday, and will fall into the mid to high 90's for your 4th of July weekend. Dry weather will persist through the region, but there will be a slight chance of valley sprinkles on Thursday evening, and thunderstorms in the mountains from Thursday through Saturday.
