Storm Tracker Forecast - A Hot Week Becomes A Hotter Weekend

A hot week will transform into an even hotter weekend over northern California as high pressure stays in control of our weather. No rain is in the forecast, but it will cool a bit by late next week.

Posted: Jul 10, 2020 5:55 PM

Hot weather has settled over northern California and it will not be loosening its grip for quite some time. We will have a clear and mild to warm evening with lows ranging from the 40s and 50s in the mountains to the 60s and lower 70s in the foothills and valley. Saturday will be another sunny day with a few clouds over the mountains, and highs will be a few degrees hotter than they were on Friday. Highs will range from the 80s and lower 90s in the mountains. In the foothills and the valley, highs will range from the mid 90s to the mid 100s. Thankfully the wind will not be strong, so fire danger won't be as high as it could be, but caution still needs to be exercised due to our hot, dry weather and dry available fuel on the ground.

A trough of low pressure will pass north of our area over the Pacific Northwest on Sunday and Monday. It won't lower our temperatures, but it will give us slightly stronger breezes. Thankfully, the wind does not appear to be as strong as it could be with a storm passing near the region. Our weather will get hotter again next Tuesday and Wednesday as the huge ridge of high pressure over the Four Corners states once again expands westward toward California, and highs for most areas will peak on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will have slightly cooler weather, but it will remain hotter than average. Highs in the mountains will remain in the 80s and 90s, with 90s and lower to mid 100s for the foothills and valley through next week.

Thankfully our windy, fire danger weather pattern is coming to an end over northern California. The wind will decrease to lighter breezes late tonight through tomorrow, and our fire danger won't be quite as extreme going forward.
