The weather has cooled considerably over northern California from late last week through today, with both cooler daytime highs and milder overnight lows. The wind did become stronger over the weekend and that gusty wind continues today, which is why the Red Flag Warning continues for our area through Monday evening at 8PM. The disturbance causing our gusty wind will continue to move eastward tonight through Tuesday, and we can expect a weakening of the wind as well as a reduction of the fire danger. Tonight will be mostly clear to clear and mild with lows ranging from the 40s and 50s in the mountains to the 60s in the valley. Tuesday will be mostly sunny and warmer with highs ranging from the 70s and 80s in the mountains to the upper 80s and lower to mid 90s in the valley.
Our overall weather pattern will not change much for the last day of June tomorrow or the first week of July. A trough of low pressure will more or less be parked over the Pacific Northwest and northern California thorugh this weekend and early next week. A few small disturbances will move through that trough-like pattern through early next week, but no good chances for rain exist for our area for at least the next week, and more than likely the next two weeks. It will be a little cooler with a few more clouds on Friday, but overall we can expect a mostly sunny to sunny sky with hot and seasonable temperatures through the first week of July. Highs in the mountains will be mainly in the 70s and 80s, while valley highs will range from the upper 80s to the upper 90s, which is quite seasonable.
