Storm Tracker Forecast: Modest cooling trend ahead

A modest dip in high temperatures and the potential for showers are ahead in your extended forecast.

Posted: Nov 11, 2019 10:03 PM

We had partly cloudy skies and record breaking heat over northern California today. Redding and Red Bluff both topped out at 86 degrees this afternoon. The previous record for Redding was 84 degrees set in 1933, and the previous record for Red Bluff was 81 degrees set in 1969. The trend of dry weather and above average temperatures continues over the next several days, but we finally have a little change on the way in your forecast. Partly to mostly cloudy skies will continue to cover Northern California as we move through the next few days, and temperatures will become slightly cooler for the middle of this week. You can expect temperatures to dip into the 40's in the valley overnight tonight, and mountain areas will dip into the 20's to 30's again for your Tuesday morning. High temperatures will slide down from the 70's to mid 80's that we saw this afternoon down into the mid to high 70's in the valley on Tuesday afternoon.

Temperatures will continue to slide as we head into the middle of your work week as high pressure breaks down and low pressure moves through to our North. Valley areas will only top out in the low to mid 70's on Thursday and Friday.That cooling trend will be short lived as another ridge of high pressure will build into our region this weekend, and result in high 70's returning to the valley. We do have a chance for some showers pushing into the coast on Friday evening, but current models keep the valley and Sierra dry. We will have a more promising chance for widespread showers returning to all of Northern California early next week.

Wednesday was a scorching day for parts of the valley as northerly airflow really warmed our temperatures. The breezes will continue Thursday, but their direction will shift and it will be slightly cooler.
