Posted: Aug 13, 2018 6:36 AM

Mild heat, mostly sunny skies, and partially hazy conditions are on tap for your Monday. Air quality is starting out in a much more desirable range than what we had for the end of last week. The majority of Northern California has moderate air quality for the start of your Monday, but smoke continues to leave Redding in the unhealthy for sensitive groups range for the start of the day. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 60's in the valley overnight, and into the 40's to mid 50's in the mountains. Winds are starting out out of the Northeast up to around 5mph this morning, but South winds will be up to 10mph this afternoon. Humidity will more than likely dip into the 10 to 25 percent range this afternoon. There will be a chance for Sierra showers and thunderstorms, but that will be limited to areas South of Tahoe today. High temperatures are projected to climb into the mid to high 90's in the valley this afternoon, while mountain areas top out in the mid 80's to mid 90's.

Not much is expected to change in your forecast for Tuesday, but there will be a slightly better chance for some active weather spreading into the Northern Sierra. The current outlook is calling for a 10 percent chance of active weather moving North into the Quincy to Chester region. Temperatures will begin to get slightly hotter for the middle to latter part of the work week. Valley areas are projected to climb into the mid 90's to low triple digits from Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures are then expected to get a few degrees hotter heading into your weekend. Valley areas are projected to end up in the high 90's to around 105 degrees for both Saturday and Sunday.

Air quality is looking a bit better this morning, and we'll be staying warm for your first afternoon of the fall season. We'll be a little cooler and have a chance for some showers on Thursday. Dry and hotter conditions return for your weekend.
