It's turning out to be a hot start to the week with temperatures slightly above normal for this time of year.  It's expected to be a the same on Tuesday before we see a bigger drop by Wednesday and Thursday.  

This is all thanks to a trough of low pressure moving through the Pacific Northwest and clipping Northern California.  It will not only bring us cooler weather but there will be a chance for showers and thunderstorms mainly in the mountains with an even smaller chance for some of those showers making it to the valley.  At this point we're keeping the valley dry.

High pressure builds back over the Northstate with highs climbing back up to the mid to upper 90s in the valley this weekend with triple digits possibly by the beginning of next week.
