2 days ago Redding broke the record high by 4 degrees by reaching 87. Yesterday theu tied their daily record at 75. And today Redding along with the rest of the Valley will continue to see this cooling trend with highs in the upper-60s (although still above average. We can expect mostly sunny skies with breezier winds in the afternoon and evening hours.
A Red Flag Warning takes effect tomorrow at 4 AM and lasts until Thursday at 7AM. This is due to winds gusting 40-55 mph in the Valley and foothills with relative humidity values dry at 15-25%. When you combine these conditions with abnormally dry vegetation for this time of year, you get a very dangerous fire weather set up. PG&E Power Shutoffs are also likely for hundereds of thousands of people.
Thursday we stay sunny, with winds calming down. We also see those high temperatures in the Valley hovering around the mid-60s. We see a slight warm up into the weekend as a ridge of high pressure builds with Chico reaching the upper-60s and Redding reaching the low-70s. By Monday we see another big system move into the area. Currently it shows rain and snow associated with it which would be good for Northern California. However, we could also see more high winds and fire danger instead of rain. This system next week will have to be watched closely.
