We're closing out the month of June on a seasonably warm note around the North Valley and Foothills of California with a mostly sunny sky and fairly weak wind in most areas. A trough of low pressure has placed itself over the Pacific Northwest and northern California at this time, and it appears that it wants to stay for a while. While it may bring some chances for rain well to the north of California, we don't have any good chances for rain in the short term or the long term. Tonight we can expect a mostly clear to clear and seasonably mild night for all areas, with lows ranging from the 40s and 50s in the higher elevations. Valley locations will have lows ranging from the upper 50s to the mid 60s. The first day of July will be similar to the last day of June, but a little warmer. We can expect a mostly sunny to sunny sky on Wednesday with highs mainly in the 80s and 90s.
The trough of low pressure over the Pacific Northwest will stay more or less in place for much of the first week of July. Several small areas of low pressure will move around and through the larger trough, and they will serve to reinforce the trough for most of the next week. We can expect a few more clouds on Friday and a minor cooling of our highs but no good chances for rain will arrive this week. The Fourth of July on Saturday will be mostly sunny and a little hotter, but still quite seasonable. The breezes will get stronger on Sunday through at least next Tuesday, but the wind does not appear as strong as it was last Sunday or yesterday. Daytime highs will fall through Friday before rising through Sunday and Monday. Higher elevations can expect more 70s and 80s for highs with highs in the Valley ranging from the lower 90s to the upper 90s and near 100 degrees.
