The sun returned and so did the heat and although it will still be hot we expect a slight cooling trend through Friday.  Redding and Red Bluff will struggle to get out of the 90s on Thursday and Friday while Chico is expected to see highs in the low 90s.  We will also see a continued chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms in the mountains through Friday.

The next warming trend will start this weekend and the triple digits will return for most of us in the valley with highs between 100 and 105 through at least the middle of next week if not longer.
