Valley highs will be 5 - 10 degrees cooler today compared to Monday. The remaining threat of thunderstorms will come to an end by the afternoon.
A few very strong thunderstorms moved through the Burney area on Monday producing heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds and hail. There were reports of pea sized to golf ball sized hail with these storms. The good news is the Eiler fire was able to pick up on some good healthy rain giving the fire fighters some relief.
As a trough of low pressure in the Pacific approaches the Pacific Northwest it will help nudge the area of low pressure through Northern California. This will give everyone a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms through this morning before the low moves to our north this afternoon. This is why the National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for most of the Northstate through at least Tuesday morning.
We're also expecting breezy south winds today for the valley floor, with higher winds in the higher elevations to the east. Modoc and Lassen county will see the higher winds and lowering humidity by the afternoon.
The trough responsible for kicking our low ashore last night will be close by through tomorrow. This trough will keep the valley floor in the mid to upper 80s.
Expect a warming trend Thursday through this weekend.
