An upper level trough has pushed into the Pacific Northwest shifting the high pressure ridge over the Southwest further east. This will bring much cooler weather today and tomorrow with highs just at or below normal. That means mid to upper 80s for west side valleys and mid to low 80s for the east side. The trough will bring a drop in temperatures but also one more chance for thunderstorms this afternoon for Lake, Klamath and west Siskiyou counties. Much like yesterday the threat is minimal, but we did see a few storms pop up in Lake county yesterday.
Enjoy the cooler weather while you can because starting Sunday the ridge will push back to the west and temperatures will start to climb again. We’ll continue this see-saw ride of warmer and cooler temperatures! How hot we’ll get next week determines how strong the ridge builds in, for now I’m keeping temperatures below 100 for west side valleys and below 90 for the east side, but as we head into next week things could change. Stay tuned for Newswatch12 for the latest!
