Storm Tracker Forecast - Hot Now With Hotter Weekend Weather Ahead

July began on a seasonably hot note for northern California with plenty of sunshine, and fortunately very little wind. We'll have a minor cooling trend through Friday before more heat arrives for the holiday weekend.

Posted: Jul 1, 2020 5:35 PM

July began much the way June ended with plentiful sunshine and seasonably hot temperatures. The air is dry and the fuel on the ground is dry, but thankfully the wind has not been strong, so the fire danger isn't as high as it could be with the hot summer weather. Tonight will be another clear, quiet and mild night for northern California with lows ranging from the 40s and 50s in the mountains, with upper 50s and 60s in the lower elevations. Thursday will be another mostly sunny to sunny day for our area, and temperatures will be similar to today, if not a degree or two cooler. Highs will range from the 70s and lower 80s in the mountains. Valley and foothill highs on Thursday will range from the mid 80s to the mid 90s.

A fairly stationary trough of low pressure will affect the weather of the Pacific Northwest and northern California for most of the short term and long term. Several small disturbances will move around that trough of low pressure over the next 7 to 10 days, but unfortunately they won't bring any good chances for rain to our area. We can expect temperatures to fall to slightly cooler than average levels through Friday before they rise again this coming Independence Day weekend. It will remain warm in the mountains and hot in the valleys through the middle of next week, with breezy to windy weather from Sunday through next Wednesday. Highs will be in the 70s and 80s in the mountains, with mainly 90s in the valley.
