Weather has been wonderfrul today.. Tomorrow we will see a big jump in temperatures.

Once we start your work week, we will see a warming trend and sunny skies through the following weekend. Monday a ridge of high pressure settles in the area which keeps the clouds away, begins to dry us out Monday and starts to warm us up. Highs on Monday look to reach the mid-80s in the Valley. By Wednesday highs reach the upper-80s in the Valley before we gradually cool on Thursday. Highs on Saturday look to be in the low-80s.

High fire danger is also in your forecast, with the worst days oin Wednesday and early Thursday. A strong ridge of high pressure to our West and a trough of low pressure to our East will cause a "tight" pressure gradient across our area. This will lead to wind gusts up to 30 mph on top of already dry conditions with relative humidity values expected to be in the teens.

Next weekend a big disturbance from Canada moves into the North State. The forecast on its strength is stioll low confidence at the this time. But we could see much cooler temperatures, more clouds, fire danger due to increased winds, mountain snow and maybe Valley rain. Which of these we could see and to what extent is still to be determined.
