The heat will continue across Northern California today, but temperatures are not expected to be as hot as yesterday. Skies are expected to stay sunny, but haze from the current wildfires in the region will continue to impact air quality. Temperatures have dipped into the low to mid 60's in the valley overnight, and into the 40's to 50's in the mountains early today. Air quality is starting out in the moderate range for most areas, but will more than likely become worse in areas directly surrounding fires this afternoon. Winds are out of the Northeast to around 7mph for the start of your Wednesday, but South winds to 10mph are expected to return for your afternoon. The Delta Breeze will have modest impacts on high temperatures this afternoon, but they will still be several degrees above average. High temperatures are projected to end up in the 94 to 98 degree range in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas are projected to climb into the mid 80's to mid 90's later today.
Temperatures will not change much through the end of the week, but could actually end up a couple of degrees hotter on Friday. High pressure is expected to strengthen towards the end of the week, and that will result in dry and hot conditions across Northern California. Current projections have the valley ranging from 95 to 99 degrees on Friday. A cooling trend will then take hold of our area this weekend, and that should knock temperatures down by around 5 degrees compared to Friday. Valley areas will end up in the low to mid 90's this weekend, and the cooling trend will continue for next week. Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid 80's to low 90's on Tuesday afternoon in the valley, and will then continue to cool through the end of next week. It may actually start to feel like Fall from the middle to latter part of next week!
