Storm Tracker Forecast: Hot, sunny & hazy all week

More sun and hot weather will continue through your forecast as will the haze, but air quality has been steadily improving each day and will continue to do so. Breezy weather could elevate fire weather concerns for some on Sunday and Monday.

The skies have remained hazy today with the heat still pretty obvious. Despite the haze, air quality for most has been bumped in to the unhealthy for sensitive groups range which is an impovement on the unhealthy for everyone category. The haze will continue the next few days as will the heat.

Tomorrow there will be low-100s to upper-90s across the valley and sunny, hazy skies. The wind will pick up and blow in from the north. That is a dry wind. It won't be too strong, maybe gusts 20-25 mph, but could still elevate fire weather concerns. This is all due to a ridge of high pressure to our west and a trough of low pressure to our east. These opposing forces usually cause breezier conditions in between them. The breezy conditions should die down by Monday night.

A strong ridge of high pressure dominates the weather pattern the rest of next week. This means, dry, hot stagnant air over our region. The hottest day being Tuesday where some (mainly Redding) could reach 107 or even 108. Air quality will likely remain the same through this stagnant period with hazy, sunny skies.

Labor Day weekend could see more windy weather meaning another increase in fire danger. But it is still a bit far out to be certain.

Throw on a jacket and grab those sunglasses as you're heading out the door Monday morning. We have brisk temperatures to start the day, but will end up sunny and warm for your Monday afternoon. We'll get even warmer mid week. A modest drop in temperatures and the potential for showers will finally return for your weekend.
