Storm Tracker Forecast: A Red Flag Warning & triple digit heat are ahead

Fire danger is getting much higher in Modoc County today and triple digit heat is on the way for your weekend.

Posted: Aug 1, 2019 6:36 AM

The trend of sunny skies, dry weather and around average high temperatures will continue in Northern California for your Thursday forecast. Skies are clear for the start of your Thursday and we'll be staying sunny today. Some impacts to air quality could persist today but South winds should help to mitigate that problem in our region. A Red Flag Warning for high fire danger will go into effect for Modoc County this afteroon and will stay in place through this evening. Low humidity and gusty South winds will be the main driving factors in higher fire danger in that area today. The remainder of Northern California will have elevated fire danger but no watches or warnings in place this afternoon. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 60's in the valley this morning, and mountain areas are startrint out in the mid 40's to low 50's early today. Winds will be out of the South to around 15mph this afternoon. Modoc County will have the potential for gusts upwards of 25mph later today, but winds are not expected to be that strong elsewhere. Humidity will fall into the 15 to 30 percent range in the valley this afternoon. High temepratures will end up in the mid to high 90's in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas will top out in the mid 80's to mid 90's later today.

Temperatures are expected to get a few degrees hotter as we head into your weekend. Valley areas will be in the high 90's to around 104 degrees this weekend. We'll be staying sunny and dry through your extended forecast. Winds will cotninue to be out of the South for the next several days, so the Delta Breeze will help to keep high temperatures somewhat in check. Low pressure tracking towards the Pacific Northwest will bring another dip in temperatures to our region next week. Valley areas will dip back into the mid to high 90's on Tuesday and will then be in the mid 90's on Wednesday.
