Posted: Jun 17, 2019 6:48 AM

Get ready for the heat to ramp up across Northern California over the next few days. Temperatures will end up around 5 to 10 degrees hotter than yesterday today and even hotter temperatures are expected for your Tuesday. There will be a lingering chance for some mountain thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, but the main threat of active weather is expected to shift to our South today. Skies are mostly clear for the start of your Monday and we're expecting to stay sunny to mostly sunny today. Temperatures have dipped into the 60's to low 70's for the start of your Monday in the valley and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains this morning. Winds are projected to be out of the North from 10 to 20mph, and humidity will bottom out in the teens this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to end up in the 98 to 105 degree range in the valley this afternoon and in the 80's to 90's in the mountains later today. The hotter temperatures, breezy North winds, and lower humidity will all combine to result in high fire danger today.

Temperatures will be a couple of degrees hotter on Tuesday and skies will be sunny. High temperatures will end up in the 102 to 108 degree range in the valley on Tuesday afternoon. We'll be dry and breezy North winds will keep fire danger elevated. There will be potential for both heat and fire danger warnings on Tuesday. Temperatures will start to drop on Wednesday but will stay very hot. Temepratures will slowly drop back into the low to mid 90's by the end of the week. We'll be dry and somewhat cooler through your weekend. Valley areas are currently set to dip into the low to mid 90's by Sunday.
