Temperatures will stay around or above average for the start of your work week, but will be several degrees cooler than what we had over the weekend. Skies are mostly clear and we are very warm for the start of your Monday. Valley areas are starting out in the mid 70's this morning, and mountain areas have only dipped into the low to mid 50's overnight. Winds are out of the Northeast this morning, but will shift to become out of the South from 10 to 15mph this afternoon. Humidity has not recovered well overnight, but is expected to remain slightly higher this afternoon. Valley areas will have humidity end up in the 15 to 30 percent range this afternoon. High temperatures will top out in the 98 to 102 degree range in the valley, while mountain areas end up in the mid 80's to low 90's this afternoon. The hot temperatures, and low humidity will continue to leave fire danger in the high range for this afternoon. Smoke from fires burning in Oregon will also have limited impacts to air quality in the northern portions of our region today. South winds picking up this afternoon should help to limit impacts to air quality but you're encouraged to stay indoors if you are in an area where smoke is an issue.
Temperatures will dip back into the mid to high 90's in the valley on Tuesday and will stay in that range through Thursday. Skies will be sunny and our entire region will stay dry. Smoke from the fires burning in Oregon could continue to impact Northern California this week. There will be another uptick in high temperatures on the way for Friday and your upcoming weekend. Looks like we can expect mid 90's to low triple digits in the valley on Friday, high 90's to triple digits on Saturday and widespread triple digit heat on Sunday. Please make sure you're staying hydrated and dressing for the heat. Heat related illness will continue to be possible through your extended forecast.
