SEVERE WX : Excessive Heat Warning View Alerts

Storm Tracker Forecast: Temperatures soar into the upper-80s by mid-week

The heat will be in full swing this week with temperatures soaring to near 90 by the end of the week. Mountain showers will be possible today and Wednesday but the Valley will remain dry, except for a tiny chance for a shower in the North Valley on Monday.

Today a will be mostly dry as a ridge of high pressure attempts to move into the area. Highs reach the low-70s. A small disturbance slides down to coast today which will bring increased cloud over the region, scattered mountain showers and a stray shower unlikely but possible in the North Valley.

Tomorrow the ridge of high pressure gains strength and dominates our weather pattern for the rest of the week. Squashing the chance for any significant cloud cover or disturbances to reach our region.

Highs reach the low-80s tomorrow and could reach the upper-80s Wednesday-Friday. The real question is, will we see our first 90 degree temperatures of the year? I don't think that will happen yet but it could. My official forecast calls for temperatures in the Valley to get as warm as 88 degrees, so anything is possible.

The ridge of high pressure weakens during the weekend. This will cause temperatures to drop back into the low-80s but still above average. Unfortunately, no disturbances look to bring any significant rain to the region while the ridge of high pressure is off it's guard. However, this far in the future, the forecawst uncertainy is large, so its possible over the next few days we could see a system trying to make its way down to California this weekend. I will keep my eyes peeled for you.
