Much hotter temperatures are on the way in your work week forecast. High temperatures are expected to be between 1 to 4 degrees hotter than what was recorded on Sunday. Valley areas have dipped into the mid 60's to low 70's overnight, and mountain areas have bottomed out in the low 50's to low 60's. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the high 90's to around 105 degrees for the valley, and into the high 80's to around 101 degrees in the mountains. Winds will be out of the South up to around 10mph this afternoon.
Temperatures will continue to climb over the next few days, and will top out in the 109 to 115 degree range by Wednesday. The potential for mountain thunderstorms will return toward the middle of the week as well, but that active weather is not as likely for today. Temperatures will then fall back into the high 90's to around 104 degrees for your 4th of July. Hot, and dry conditions will continue to dominate the north state through your extended forecast. Health impacts could be in store for those more sensitive to the heat (seniors, young children, those with health issues, and pets), and fire danger will be prevalent over the next week. Please make sure you're careful this week, and for your 4th of July holiday weekend. I hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!
