High pressure provides for even warmer temperatures today and sunny skies across the region. As a ridge builds in the region we’ll see quite the warm up with temperatures today 5-10 degrees warmer than yesterday and even hotter tomorrow, close to record highs for the next couple days! The warm up is short lived with some relief by the weekend as a trough nudges its way inland, but even this cool down is short lived. Another ridge builds in by the end of the weekend warmer temperatures back to above normal as we head into next week.
It’s hard to believe that fall is only ten days away with with highs today closer to mid-summer temperatures! The record for today was set back in 1975 of 100 degrees, and the record tomorrow set back in 1995 of 101 degrees.
A red flag warning near the coast expires today at 11 AM while two other red flag warnings in northern California and along the ridges of the Cascades will last through tomorrow at 11 AM. To see the outline of these warnings you can click the National Weather Service link under the ‘Weather Links.’
