Hot, dry, and windy conditions are in store for your Tuesday Farmcast. Temperatures in the valley are starting out in the high 60's to low 80's, and are projected to climb into the 100 to 106 degree range this afternoon. Winds will be at least as strong as they were yesterday, with sustained winds up to 15mph out of the North, and gusts to around 25mph. Humidity values will continue to trend very low, and will bottom out between 10 to 20 percent this afternoon. Your Tuesday morning sunrise is set for 6:03am, and sunset will be at 8:25pm.
The hot, and windy weather will continue for most of the week, with the peak of the heat expected on Thursday. Temperatures in the valley will peak in the 105 to 110 degree range on Thursday, and will stay above average through the weekend. Fire danger will remain high through the end of the week, so people are being asked to take precaution while working outside, especially with heavy equipment. There will be a chance for monsoonal moisture tracking into the north state in the mid to late week forecast, but most if not all thunderstorm activity will be limited to the mountains. Please make sure to stay hydrated, and wear light clothing to stay safe in the heat.
