Emergency personnel arrived on the scene and the motorcyclist was pronounced dead.

It is unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision.

Monday was almost as hot as Sunday for most of northern California as a ridge of high pressure controlled our weather. A cooling trend is coming, but it will only cool to seasonable levels in the short term.
