Another hot day for the Memorial Day weekend.

Temperatures will be a couple degrees warmer than they were yesterday in the NorthState.  That’ll put highs in the mid to upper 90s with a few places like Red Bluff and Corning seeing the chance of 100°.  Skies will stay clear so it will be a very nice day, albeit on the hot side and way above normal (our normal high is nearer to 84°).  These mid to upper 90s place temperatures 10-15° above normal.

By Monday an upper level trough will descend on the NorthState from the pacific northwest.  That system won’t bring much by way of any rain – maybe a sprinkle or two for the mountains – but it will cool temperatures down to nearer their normal levels.  This system won’t be very progressive and will form another ‘omega’ block just to our east.  That will keep the cooler air in place for a while and will give us a break from the incessant heat and will make things a bit more comfortable through this week.
