RED FLAG WARNING AND FIRE WEATHER WATCH

An area of low pressure has parked itself off the coast between Eureka and San Francisco helping to produce thunderstorms in the Northstate.  Most of the thunderstorm activity has been to the north and east of the valley. Minus a slight chance for a stray shower or even thunderstorm in the valley most of the activity will stay to the north and east.  This includes Burney, Alturas and Chester.  The chances for thunderstorms in Trinity County will be slim but worth keeping a close eye on.

As the storms move from southeast to northwest there is a chance some of those could roll down into the valley, in particular Redding and Red Bluff.  However, the best chance for valley thunderstorms will be Monday night into Tuesday morning as the area of low pressure opens up and moves through Northern California.  

The storm will be to our east by Wednesday with temperatures in the low to mid 90's under mostly sunny skies the rest of the week.
