Storm Tracker Forecast: Fire Weather Watch ahead for Northern California

Temperatures will be cooling over the next few days but fire danger is on the rise in your late week forecast.

Posted: Jun 19, 2019 7:07 AM

Get ready for another sunny and hot day across Northern California. We aren't expecting to get as hot as we did yesterday, but temperatures will end up well above average for your Wednesday afternoon. Skies are clear for the start of your Wednesday and will stay sunny today. Temperatures have dipped into the 70's to low 80's in the valley this morning, and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains overnight. Winds will be out of the North From 10 to 20mph this afternoon and humidity will dip into the 10 to 25 percent range later today. High temperatures are projected to end up in the high 90's to low triple digits in the valley and mountain areas will top out in the mid 80's to mid 90's this afternoon. Fire danger will be in the moderate to high range today, but will become high late this week.

A nice cooling trend is ahead for the end of the work week, but low humidity and gusty North winds will result in increased fire danger. A Fire Weather Watch will go into effect on Thursday afternoon and last through Saturday morning. Winds will be up to 25mph out of the North, with gusts to around 35mph. Humidity will be dropping into the 10 to 20 percent range in the afternoons, and is not expected to recover well overnight. Temperatures will dip back into the low to mid 90's in the valley on Thursday and then down into the low 90's on Friday in the valley. There will be a very slight chance for some Sierra showers on Friday evening, but we'll mostly stay dry through your extended forecast. We are expecting an increase in temperatures as we head into your weekend. Valley areas will end up back in the mid to high 90's by Sunday afternoon. Another cooling trend looks likely for next week, and that one could put our high temperatures below average for a few days. We'll be in the low to mid 90's in the valley on Monday and then down into the mid 80's to low 90's in the valley on Tuesday.

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
