Posted: Jul 11, 2018 6:34 AM

The heat continues for your Wednesday forecast, and it doesn't look like there is an end to the triple digit heat in sight for your extended forecast. Sunny skies, and very dry conditions are expected for your Wednesday. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 60's in the valley overnight, and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains this morning. Winds are out of the Northeast to around 10mph this morning, and will stay in that same direction and speed for most of the day. South winds may return this evening. Humidity will dip to as low as 8 percent later today. High temperatures are projected to climb into the 100 to 105 degree range in the valley this afternoon, and into the low to mid 90's in the mountains later today. The hot and dry conditions will result in high fire danger this afternoon. Please avoid mowing your lawn or using heavy machinery during the afternoon hours when fire danger will be most prevalent.

Temperatures will stay well above average over the next several days, but the potential for showers and thunderstorms will be returning to Northern California. Monsoonal moisture may get pushed Northwest into our region from Thursday through Saturday. There is a slight chance for some of that moisture making it's way back into our region today, but that does not seem very likely. The best chance for active weather over the next few days will be in portions of the Northern Sierra, but we cannot rule out the chance for showers or thunderstorms brushing the valley or foothills during that time. Low temperatures in the valley will range from the high 60's to low 70's for the next week, and high temperatures will be anywhere from 100 to 108 degrees over the next week.

The chance for showers and thunderstorms in expected to wrap up by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures will become hotter for the weekend, and are projected to end up in the 102 to 107 degree range. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny, and humidity will be low. Fire danger will continue to be a major concern heading through the weekend. The severe heat will continue into next week, with temperatures expected to stay in the triple digits through at least Tuesday.
