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 summertime high pressure area that is usually over the Southwestern U.S. has been displaced northward and is now over the Pacific Northwest. This pattern will bring very hot weather to a large portion of the western U.S. The next 5 days the inland areas of Northern California will have record or near record temperatures. Winds will be relatively light.
The high will weaken slightly after midweek (see map below). These will allow temperatures to cool a few degrees but it will still be hot. We may see some isolated mountains thunderstorms starting Wednesday as sub tropical moisture gets pulled northward.
