Staying dry and getting hotter for your weekend

Dry and hotter conditions are ahead for your weekend

Posted: Aug 16, 2018 6:51 AM

Not much is changing in your Thursday forecast, but the active weather we saw yesterday in the Sierra and Cascades have shifted off to our East this morning. Dry weather has returned to all of Northern California for the start of your Thursday. Smoke from current wildfires will continue to leave the region with hazy skies today. The worst impacts on air quality are expected to stay in areas around or North of the Carr Fire. Shasta, Trinity, and Siskiyou Counties will likely have air quality in the unhealthy or unhealthy for sensitive groups range, while areas to the South of Shasta County will have air quality ranging from good to moderate. 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 light, but will pick up to around 10mph out of the South this afternoon. Humidity will likely dip into the 15 to 30 percent range later today. High temperatures are projected to climb into the 93 to 98 degree range in the valley this afternoon, while mountain areas top out in the low to mid 90's later today.

Temperatures will climb back into the mid 90's to low triple digits across the valley for the end of your work week, and upcoming weekend. Mountain areas will likely continue to top out in the low to mid 90's during that time, but portions of the Northern Mountains may end up in the high 90's this weekend. South winds will continue to drive the worst of the air quality into areas North of the Carr Fire through the weekend. Temperatures will start to cool back into the mid to high 90's early next week in the valley, and the dry weather will continue.
