Another hot sunny day in northern California with hotter temperatures coming soon.
Yesterday we saw temperatures shoot to 99 degrees and today we’ll see them break the triple digit mark. This will put us at least 13 degrees above average for the day, as our normal high is 87 degrees. This abnormal heat is due to a large high pressure system which has built in from the South and East and is holding the air overhead almost completely stationary. That isn’t good for air quality and some isolated valleys could see some accumulation of smoke and thick haze in the air. In the Sacramento valley we’ve seen this happen several days in a row now, but nothing as bad as mid to late August with the fires around.
Unfortunately for those who love cooler temperatures latest models are pushing the cool down off until mid-late week next week. We’re waiting for an upper level trough to move through and connect with an oceanic cutoff low to really cool things down for us.
