High pressure off the California Coast in the Pacific and Low pressure to our North over the Pacific Northwest are expected to persist through our extended forecast, and will result in seasonable temperatures over the next several days. Skies are clear across Northern California this morning and are expected to stay sunny through the day. Temperatures are startin gout in the mid 60's to low 70's in the valley, in the mid 60's in the foothills, and in the 30's to 40's in the mountains early today. Winds are out of the Northeast to around 10mph for the start of your Tuesday, but will be out of the Northwest up to around 15mph this afternoon. Some parts of the Mid Valley may even see a shift to Southwest winds as we head into your evening hours. Humidity hasn't recovered all that well overnight, and is mostly starting out under 50 percent in the valley. We're expecting humidity values to end up down into the 10 to 25 percent range for your afternoon. High temperatures are expected to be warmer than Monday, with valley areas topping out in the mid 90's, foothill areas topping out in the low to mid 80's, and Sierra locations ending up in the 70's to mid 80's this afternoon. Northern Mountain areas can mostly expect high temperatures in the mid to high 80's later today. Fire danger will be in the moderate range due to the lighter winds, but the dry conditions continue to make it a concern.

Not much is expected to change over the next several days, but increasing onshore flow could help valley temperatures slide back into the low 90s towards the end of your work week. South winds from 10 to 15mph are expected from Wednesday on in your forecast. Your 4th of July Weekend looks sunny to mostly sunny, and mild. Temperatures will end up around average for this time of year for both Saturday and Sunday. That means valley areas will start out in the 60's and will mostly top out in the mid 90's for the upcoming weekend. Foothill areas will start out in the 60's and end up in the mid to high 80's on both Saturday and Sunday. Mountain areas will dip into the 40's, and will end up in the mid 80's through your 4th of July Weekend. Temperatures could end up slightly warmer in the Northern Mountains this weekend, but it will still be comfortable. This does look like an ideal weekend to go camping, but please use extreme caution if you are planning on setting up a camp fire. Make sure any camp fires you do start are out before you are, and take care to not park over dry brush.

Sunny and hot on Monday afternoon, and we'll get even hotter for the middle of this week. A modest dip in temperatures and the potential for Sierra thunderstorms is on the way for your Thursday.
