Storm Tracker Forecast - A Hot Week Becomes A Hotter Weekend

Hot weather has settled over northern California and it will not be loosening its grip for quite some time. We will have a clear and mild to warm evening with lows ranging from the 40s and 50s in the mountains to the 60s and lower 70s in the foothills and valley. Saturday will be another sunny day with a few clouds over the mountains, and highs will be a few degrees hotter than they were on Friday. Highs will range from the 80s and lower 90s in the mountains. In the foothills and the valley, highs will range from the mid 90s to the mid 100s. Thankfully the wind will not be strong, so fire danger won't be as high as it could be, but caution still needs to be exercised due to our hot, dry weather and dry available fuel on the ground.

A trough of low pressure will pass north of our area over the Pacific Northwest on Sunday and Monday. It won't lower our temperatures, but it will give us slightly stronger breezes. Thankfully, the wind does not appear to be as strong as it could be with a storm passing near the region. Our weather will get hotter again next Tuesday and Wednesday as the huge ridge of high pressure over the Four Corners states once again expands westward toward California, and highs for most areas will peak on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will have slightly cooler weather, but it will remain hotter than average. Highs in the mountains will remain in the 80s and 90s, with 90s and lower to mid 100s for the foothills and valley through next week.

<The cold & wet weather the last few days came from a system just off the coast. That has now moved down the coast to Southern California. This means today will be sunnier and warmer with highs reaching the upper-60s to even the mid-70s. A few mountain showers will be possible in the Sierra with the best chances farther south towards Lake Tahoe. Its unlikely we'll see showers in the Valley today but as you head towards Sacramento, a few light showers could be possible once you get south of Yuba City. 
Tomorrow we warm into the upper-70s to low-80s with sunny skies. It will also be just a bit breezy. 
Thursday & Firday should still be warm but it looks like the highs will drop back into the 70s for everyone, with increasing clouds as you head south in the Valley. Mostly sunny in Redding and partly cloudy in Chico. The reason for the subtle changes from the warmer & sunnier weather on Wednesday has to do with that low pressure system that moved down the coast. It will remain stalled in SoCal and could even retrograde back north a bit into central california. 
By Saturday, the system will finally move out east and allow the high pressure system in the Pacific full control of our weather again. This will bring back complete sunny skies and highjs in the 80s for the weekend.
Monday we should return back to the 70s.>
