Posted: Aug 9, 2019 6:32 AM

Cooler temperatures, showers, thunderstorms, and high fire danger are ahead for your Friday and weekend forecast. 3 separate Red Flag Warnings are set to go into effect through Saturday evening. The first Red Flag Warning will go into effect in Siskiyou County at 11am this morning, and will last through 10pm Saturday night. The second Red Flag Warning will go into effect in Trinity County at 1pm this afternoon and will last through 11pm tonight. The third Red Flag Warning is set to go into effect in Modoc County from 11am Saturday through 10pm Saturday night. All three Red Flag Warnings are being issued becuase of the threat of thunderstorms returning to our region today and tomorrow. Lightning sparked fires will be very possible over the next few days.

Temperatures are getting much cooler for your Friday and the cooling trend will continue into Saturday. Skies are cloudy this morning, and temperatures have dipped into the 50's to 60's in the valley and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains for the start of your Friday. Winds are out of the Northeast this morning, but will pick up to around 15mph out of the South this afternoon. The potential for showers and thunderstorms will return to the Northern Mountains this afternoon, and could possibly spill into the Northern end of the valley later today. High temperatures will top out in the mid to high 80's in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas will end up in the mid 70's to low 80's later today.

The threat of thunderstorms and showers will become more widespread on Saturday. Mountain areas will more than likely see the brunt of the active weather but portions of the valley will likely have some shower and thunderstorm activity on Saturday afternoon. Temepratures will range in the low to mid 80's in the valley on Saturday. The potential for showers and thunderstorms will taper off Saturday night, and skies will be clearing on Sunday. High temepratures will climb back into the low to mid 90's in the valley on Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will continue to warm into the high 90's to low triple digits on Tuesday and we'll be dry for the start to middle of next week. Another cooling trend is expected to arrive on Wednesday, with valley highs dipping back into the 80's by Thursday of next week. More mountain shower and thunderstorms are looking possible towards the end of next week.
