The forecast for Northern California is staying fairly uniform over the next several days as areas of high pressure rest to our Southeast and West, and areas of low pressure pass by to our North. Skies will be sunny to mostly sunny over our region through the day. There will be a very slight chance for a shower or thunderstorm popping up in the Lassen Park area this evening but the remainder of our area will stay dry. Temperatures are starting out several degrees warmer than yesterday in the valley and foothills, but are close to yesterday's readings in higher elevations. Valley and foothill areas are starting out in the 60's to low 70's, while most mountain areas are in the 40's this morning. Winds are out of the Northeast to around 10mph early today, but are expected to shift to the Southeast to 10mph by this evening. Humidity has not recovered all that well overnight in the northern end of the valley and is below 40 percent. Mid valley areas have seen better recovery and are starting out above 50 percent this morning. We're expecting humidity to dip back into the 10 to 25 percent range this afternoon. High temperatures will top out in the 92 to 98 degree range in the valley today, while foothill and Sierra locations end up in the mid to high 80's, and the Northern Mountains top out in the 80's to low 90's. The low humidity and dry fuels will keep our fire danger in the moderate range this afternoon.

A very modest dip in high temperatures is expected on Friday as winds pick up out of the South and we get a little bit of influence from the Delta Breeze. We'll still be dry and sunny, with temperatures around average for this time of year. High pressure become more dominant over the Southwest as we head into your 4th of July weekend, and that will result in warmer temperatures on Saturday and Sunday. We'll also be staying sunny to mostly sunny through the holiday weekend. Valley areas can expect low temperatures in the 60's and high temperatures in the mid to upper 90's through this weekend. Foothill areas will have low temperatures in the 60's and high temperatures in the 80's to low 90's on Saturday and Sunday. Mountain areas can expect low temperatures in the 40's and high temperatures in the 80's to 90's this weekend. All around, it's shaping up to be a warm and nice 4th of July weekend.

Very similar conditions are on the way as we head into next week, but high temperatures will cool by a couple of degrees compared to the weekend. We'll be staying dry with sunny to mostly sunny skies. We also do not have any stronger wind events expected in your forecast, which is good news for our fire danger.
