Happy Wednesday! We're halfway through the work-week and halfway through our warming trend.

Today we're hitting 90s in the valley, 80s in the mountains, just below normal for this time in July.

We have a southwesterly airflow today, with high pressure centered over Arizona and Utah and a low-pressure system off the Pacific Northwest coast.

A few weak fronts to our north could mean we're still seeing some mid-level clouds out there in Shasta County and above.

South of Redding, we're seeing plenty of sunshine today.

That high pressure to our Southeast will build in our direction into the weekend, meaning we'll stay clear, sunny and warmer.

By tomorrow, our highs climb to just above normal and then by Friday, we're just above, hitting the triple digits in the Northern parts of the valley.

We'll start the weekend hot, but another low-pressure center moves over the Pacific Northwest and in off the coast, so we'll see the beginning of a slight cool-down as we head into our next work-week.

As for fire danger, we'll stay medium-high, with low humidity levels but winds on the light side.

We may see a bit of the Delta Breeze and some gusty spells across the higher parts of the Sierra.

Rain showers and a good chance for thunderstorms are on the way for your Friday night and Saturday forecast. We'll also be much cooler and have gusty South winds this weekend. Some showers are possible early next week, but dry and warmer weather returns for the middle of next week.
