This blog will be issued every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring
The only change in our weather is the high pressure area over the western U.S. will get stronger by this weekend (see map below). This means hotter weather. Today and Thursday the inland areas of the northstate will be clear with temperatures normal to slightly below. Things start warming Friday and by the weekend daytime temperatures will be 8 to 12 degrees above normal. Winds will be light.
The heat continues into early next week with some cooling by midweek We could see some subtropical moisture pulled northward early next week and this will trigger afternoon and evening mountain thunderstorms.
