Sunny to mostly sunny skies and hot temperatures are on tap for your Labor Day across Northern California. You may want to put on sunscreen if you're going to be outside for an extended amount of time today and don't forget to stay hydrated. Temperatures have dipped into the 50's to 60's overnight in the valley, and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains this morning. Winds are our of the Northeast to around 10mph this morning, but will be out of the Northwest to 10 mph this afternoon. Humidity will likely dip into the 10 to 25 percent range later today. Temperatures are projected to end up in the 95 to 101 degree range in the valley, while mountain areas end up in the mid 80's to mid 90's this afternoon. The hot temperatures, low humidity, and North winds will all combine to result in elevated fire danger today. Please be careful, as fires could start very easily.

Similar temperatures are expected for Northern California on Tuesday, but South winds could keep temperatures a degree or two cooler than today. There will be a very modest cooling trend through your extended forecast, resulting in about a drop of a degree per day through the end of the week. Temperatures will mostly stay above average for your extended forecast. Dry weather will persist across all of Northern California this week. There will be a cooler system ahead for our weekend, but the cooling impacts do not look impressive at this time. There is a decent chance models will start to show a better cooling trend for the weekend, but the current projection still has valley high temperatures climbing into the low to mid 90's on Saturday and Sunday.
