It was a windy and very warm Sunday with temperatures on the rise. Look for temperatures to heat up more so on Monday with highs in the 100+ range for all Valley locations.
Meanwhile, a Red Flag Warning for high fire danger is in effect for the Sacramento Valley until Sunday evening. Warming temperatures, gusty north winds and low humidity will create this high fire danger. The main threat will be the possibility of grass fires in the Valley below 1000 feet elevation. The mountains will see much lighter north winds, and therefore are not included in the Red Flag Warning.
The winds will diminish to the 5 to 15 mph range by Monday, but that's when the heat really surges. Valley highs will will be above 100 degrees on Monday, and then warm up a few degrees more on Tuesday and Wednesday Look for our highs to range between 100 and 105 on Monday and 102-108 on Tuesday. It will be hot again on Wednesday.. then into the upper 90's to finish next week.
Due to the expected hot temperatures the Valley is under an Excessive Heat Warning both Monday and Tuesday.
