Another typical hot day out there in Northern California. Tonight we can expect temperatures to get around the mid to upper 60s in the Valley but highs tomorrow look to be a degree or two higher than today.
A Red Flag Warning is in place for Modoc County until 8PM. It calls for gusty SW winds and very dry weather conditions. The Strom Prediction Center has also given Modoc County, in addition to parts of Lassen and Siskiyou counties and elevated fire risk due to dry and gusty conditions. There will also be a chance for dry thunderstorms in parts of Skiskiyou, Shasta and Trinity counties, meaning we will need to stay alert for any fires caused by lightning strikes.
Air quality is much improve across the North State due to a great reduction in the smoke in the air.
This weekend a high pressure from the Four Corners region builds into our area, leading to widespread triple digits temperatures in the Valley and highs in the mountains reaching the 90s. On Monday a low pressure might develop off the coast of British Columbia. It could strengthen on Tuesday and approach the Noth State on Wednesday. As it does so, we could see a drop in temperatures into the mid-to-low 90s in the Valley. Values that would be around average or just below average for this time of year.
