Hot this week, return to normal temps by Monday

Next week may feel a bit more normal to you with another chance for rain Tuesday across the Sierra.

Posted: Apr 24, 2019 5:09 PM

Today we're still high and dry with high pressure in place across the North State.

We're seeing widespread low 90s across the Valley - that's roughly 10 to 20 degrees above normal for this time of year.

We could be seeing record temperatures again today!

We actually have a chance for a few isolated showers and thunderstorms near the northern Sierra crest this afternoon, but should mainly remain east of the Sierra crest.

Thursday cools just a very little bit., as a weak disturbance moving across the Pacific Northwest may bring some rain into the southern Cascades and Shasta County late Thursday.

By Friday and Saturday, temperatures will have cooled back down to the mid to high 80s for the valley as heights lower - still 10 to 15 degrees above average.

Into next week, we're between an upper low well to the south and a longwave pattern from the North in place.

As the flow moves down into the Great Basin Tuesday and Wednesday some showers will be possible across the Sierra.

Plus, that tightening pressure gradient means dry, northerly winds across the Valley.

Temperatures should move closer to normal next week with mid to upper 70s for Valley highs while mountain and foothill locations stay in the 50s and 60s.
