Storm Tracker Forecast: Heating up before we cool down on Wednesday

Heating up today with triple digits possible in Chico and Redding. Even hotter Monday and Tuesday before a cool-down Wednesday-Friday.

Posted: Aug 23, 2019 7:16 AM

A normal start to your day in the North State but highs will reach or exceed 100 in the Valley today and look to remain elevated for some time. Fire danger is also high due to winds 10-15 mph and dry conditions.

The extended heat wave will be most felt on Monday and Tuesday as a high pressure system from the Eastern Pacific moves ashore and combines with a high from the Desert Southwest. Temps as high as 108 could be seen in Valley locations. All week is also looking sunny, until we reach Wednesday.

A low pressure system moves in from the West on Wednesday and causes the high pressure system to retreat from our area. This will lead to increasing clouds and gradually cooling temperatures Wednesday through Friday.

The Red Flag Warning continues through Thursday morning, but very pleasant weather is ahead for the remainder of this week. Cooler temperatures and a decent chance for showers return next week.
