Sunny skies, and slightly hotter temperatures are ahead for your Tuesday. Valley temperatures are starting out in the mid 50's to low 60's, and mountain areas have dipped into the high 30's to high 40's overnight. Afternoon high temperatures are expected to be around 2 degrees hotter than yesterday, with 92 to 97 degrees projected for the valley, and 84 to 90 degrees projected for the mountains. Those values are around 10 to 15 degrees above average for the middle of October. Winds will be up to 10mph out of the Northwest in the valley, and out of the East to around 15mph in the mountains. Humidity values will continue to be dangerously low, and will bottom out at around 15 percent this afternoon. The very dry conditions and the well above average temperatures are leaving the region under elevated fire danger this afternoon.
Temperatures will continue to be above average, but will fall by about 2 to 4 degrees over the next couple of days. Clouds will begin to fill into the region on Thursday, and there will even be a slight chance of showers extending North into Lassen County. Temperatures will be much cooler on Friday, and the potential for light precipitation will spread across the entire region. The best chance for widespread showers will be ahead for Saturday, and temperatures will be much cooler this weekend. Valley areas will top out in the low to mid 80's with partly to mostly cloudy skies this weekend. I hope everyone is able to beat the heat today, and has a great Tuesday!
