Extreme heat continues today in Northern California with most in the valley reaching between 99 and 103 degrees with sunny skies and dry conditions. Saturday most will cool into the upper-90s as a ridge of high pressure weakens. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH is in place Saturday for most of Modoc county due to wind gusts up to 40 mph and possible single digit humidity. Sunday will see highs in the mid-90s as the high pressure loses its influence on our heat.
Next week we start off with highs in the upper-80s on Monday then cool down to the low-80s by Tuesday and remain there on Wednesday. A deep trough of low pressure will weasle its way into our region keeping temperatures cooler than normal which is exactly what we want to see after our long heat wave. Overnight lows will also be back to a comfortbale and cool mid-50s.
W'll start to slowly warm up again on Thursday as highs get back into the upper-80s.
