The Red Flag Warning continues for portions of Siskiyou and Modoc Counties through 11pm tonight for thunderstorm that could spark more wildfires in remote areas. We've continued to track thunderstorms across the Sierra and Cascades overnight. Modoc and Siskiyou Counties will likely have more activity through this evening. The scattered showers and thunderstorms could persist into tonight, but conditions are not expected to be as active after noon today. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 60's in the valley overnight and into the 50's to low 60's in the mountains this morning. Winds are out of the Northeast again to start the day, but much like the last few days will end up out of the South to 10mph this afternoon. Humidity will likely dip into the 15 to 30 percent range this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to top out in the mid to high 90's in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas are expected to climb into the high 80's to mid 90's later today. Fire danger will remain in the high range for your Wednesday.
Temperatures are not expected to change much over the next few days, and dry weather is expected from Thursday through your weekend. There will be a modest rise in temperatures for this weekend, but current projections keep our valley areas in the mid 90's to low triple digits for Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will be back in the mid to high 90's for the start of next week. Smoke in the air is projected to stay an issue across Northern California in your extended forecast, and health experts are still recommending residents limit their time outdoors through the next week.
