Storm Tracker Forecast: The heat ramps up this week

Triple digits will become widespread in the valley by Wednesday with elevated fire danger this week.

Posted: Jul 21, 2019 5:41 PM

An above average day in the valley and mountains when it comes to temperatures. We can expect to see the same thing tomorrow. Redding will be in the triple digits as will other parts of the North Valley. High temperatures in the central valley, such as in Chico, should only reach upper-90s for high temperatures.

Fire danger is also looking elevated with relative humidity values dropping into the teens and winds gusts peaking at around 10-15 mph. But no red flag warning will be in place but still be prepared and fire aware. Once we reach Tuesday, Modoc County will actually be under a fire weather watch. We will continue to track conditions there and across the North State as Tuesday nears.

As we progress through your work week, temperatures really begin to climb, reaching triple digits in Chico by Wednesday. By next Saturday, the temperatures will be quite extreme. 105 for a high in Chico and 107 in Redding. It is possible a heat advisory could be issued as we get closer to next weekend.
