Redding has now had 56 days of 100 degrees or hotter...2 in May, 11 in June, 29 in July...14 so far in August.

The low pressure area that brought showers and thunderstorms to the mountains yesterday is now moving northeastward.  Today and Thursday there will still be a chance of showers and thunderstorms along and east of the Sierra Cascade Crest with mostly sunny skies elsewhere.   Temperatures will be 2 to 5 degrees above normal.  

Friday the high pressure ridge begins to build back over the western U.S. and this weekend through at least the middle of next week there will be a strong high pressure ridge over the western U.S. (see map below).   This will bring mostly sunny and hot weather to the inland areas of the north state.  Temperatures by this weekend will be 8 to 12 degrees above normal.  Winds will be light.
