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

Before I tell you no change here are a few other things...

There was a question in the comments about how common this type of high pressure ridge is.  While we usually see the southwest high push northward the last half of the summer.  This current high is about as strong as they get.

Redding normally sees about 40 days a year of 100 degree weather.  We started off slow this summer but as of yesterday Redding has had 50 days of 100 degrees or higher. 

I have inserted below this morning's satellite picture that shows the fires and the smoke.  Redding is the red "R" and you can see Tahoe in the lower right.  Winds shift today and the smoke moves back north.

Now....the satellite picture and map below look pretty much alike.  The inland areas of Northern California, for the next 7 to 10 days, will be clear or smoky with much above normal temperatures.  Near record temperatures are expected this weekend.  Winds will be light nights and mornings with south to southwest winds in the afternoon.
