It has been a day of more thunderstorms over the mountains and foothills of northern California, with fires continuing to burn as well. The Red Flag Warnings for our eastern and northern counties will continue through tonight. We will have decreasing clouds tonight with dwindling mountain thunderstorms. Lows will range from the 50s in the mountains to the 60s in the foothills and valley. Thursday will be another bright and breezy day with a few clouds and continued smoke from our area fires. Highs will range from the mid 80s to the upper 90s from the mountains to the foothills and valley.
A small trough will continue to move over California through the end of the workweek, and that will deliver slightly cooler than average weather with more breezes. A ridge of high pressure will build over the western United States this weekend, leading to another warming trend through Sunday. Another trough of low pressure will approach the West Coast during the first half of next week, and we will have another cooling trend through the middle of next week with more breezes. Lows will remain in the mild 50s and 60s with highs ranging from the upper 80s to the 90s and lower 100s, hottest this weekend.
