Posted: May 3, 2018 10:20 AM

Grab those sunglasses, and get the sunscreen ready. Sunny skies, and slightly warmer temperatures are ahead for your Thursday. Showers are now well off to our Southeast, and high pressure is building back into the West Coast. High pressure is commonly associated with dry and warmer weather, and that's what's on the way over the next few days. Temperatures are starting out in the 40's to 50's in the valley this morning, and in the 30's for most mountain areas. Skies are clear to start the day, and will stay sunny to mostly sunny. Winds are shifting this morning, and are mostly out of the West, but will become out of the South to 10mph this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to end up in the mid 80's in the valley, while mountain areas end up in the 70's this afternoon. Humidity will be slightly higher than yesterday, resulting in slightly lower fire danger.

Temperatures will continue to climb through Saturday, and we will stay dry for the end of the work week. Some clouds will fill back into the region late Friday into early Saturday. There will be a slight chance for a shower along the coast by Saturday night, and then a slight chance for light showers in the Northern Mountains on Sunday. A cooler system passing through to our North will result in a drop in temperatures on Sunday, but a sharp rebound in temperatures is expected for the start of next week. Some valley areas may even climb into the low 90's on Monday.

Another cooling trend will return from Tuesday into Wednesday of next week. Temperatures will dip from the high 80's in the valley on Tuesday, to low 80's on Wednesday. There will be a slight chance for mountain showers returning for the middle of next week, but valley areas are projected to stay dry.

The heat continues to rise around northern California as we progress through the week, and no real relief from this current heat wave is in sight.
