Northern California heat wave July 5 forecast and fire updates

BUT IT IS GOING TO BRING A LOT OF RAIN TO SOUTHERN TEXAS. OUR WEATHER NOT NEARLY AS ACTIVE. WE JUST ARE DEALING WITH LOTS OF HEAT. TEMPERATURES ARE UP AS HIGH PRESSURE SITS RIGHT OVER TOP OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. WE HAVE TEMPERATURES THAT HAVE BEEN FAIRLY COMFORTABLE THIS MORNING BECAUSE OF THE MARINE LAYER. IT’S BACK ALONG THE COAST AND IT’S BRINGING TEMPERATURES DOWN IN SAN FRANCISCO, 57 DEGREES 64, IN FAIRFIELD, 65. IN SACRAMENTO, IT’S ONLY 69 DEGREES IN STOCKTON. AGAIN, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE COOLER TEMPERATURES. THIS MORNING AND GET OUT AND AND DO SOMETHING. WE’VE GOT TEMPERATURES THAT ARE GOING TO BE HEATING UP THIS AFTERNOON UP TO 100 DEGREES BY 1:00. WE’RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURE AGAIN BETWEEN 4 AND 5:00. THAT SHOULD GET UP TO ABOUT 110 DEGREES TODAY. SO WE COULD END UP BEING A LITTLE BIT WARMER THAN WE WERE YESTERDAY. AND YESTERDAY WAS A VERY HOT DAY INTO THE FOOTHILLS. WE’RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES ARE GETTING UP TO ABOUT 102 TO 105 DEGREES. THAT KIND OF RANGE. AND THAT’S SOME SERIOUS HEAT FOR THE FOOTHILLS AND THROUGH THE SIERRA. ALSO GETTING INTO THE ACT WITH TEMPERATURES THAT ARE GOING TO BE HEATING UP, WE’RE LOOKING AT TEMPERATURES CLIMBING UP TO ABOUT 90 DEGREES THROUGH THE AFTERNOON. SO THAT’S THE HEAT WE’RE GOING TO BE DEALING WITH. AND IT’S ALL BECAUSE OF THIS DOME OF HIGH PRESSURE. THIS HOT AIR THAT’S IN PLACE. AGAIN, IT’S CENTERING ITSELF TODAY. AND TOMORROW IS WHEN WE EXPECT THE HOTTEST WEATHER HERE IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. AND THEN IT STARTS TO SHIFT A LITTLE BIT MORE AS WE MOVE FROM SUNDAY INTO MONDAY. IT OPENS UP A LITTLE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE THAT’S GOING TO DEVELOP ALONG THE COAST OF CALIFORNIA. AND THAT’S GOING TO HELP IN DROPPING TEMPERATURES AS WE MAKE OUR WAY FROM TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY. IN FACT, WE COULD HAVE TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 90S AS WE GO TOWARDS THE END OF THIS COMING WEEK. AND THE MORE MILD AIR LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO SETTLE IN FOR A LITTLE WHILE, SO WE MAY CATCH A BREAK. AN EXTENDED BREAK FROM THE KIND OF WEATHER THAT WE’VE BEEN DEALING WITH. SO IT’S WE STILL HAVE THE SERIOUS HEAT THOUGH. WE HAVE ALERT DAYS FOR TODAY. TOMORROW AT 110, 110, AND WE DROP DOWN TO 105, AND THEN WE’RE DOWN TO 102 BY MONDAY. AND AS YOU CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY, WE CONTINUE TO SEE THOSE TEMPERATURES DROPPING UNTIL WE’RE BACK IN THE UPPER 90S. BUT THAT STILL IS ABOVE AVERAGE. BUT WE’RE DEALING WITH EXTREMELY

Northern California heat wave and forecast: What to know about fire danger, how to cool off

Triple-digit temperatures are not going anywhere soon for Northern California as a heat wave continues to challenge a region already vulnerable to wildfires.KCRA 3 is calling Friday an Alert Day because of both the dangerous heat that could lead to health issues and the high fire risks. Alert Days are issued when safety is a concern due to weather conditions. We have issued Alert Days since Tuesday and expect it to last through Sunday. Here is what to know about the day’s developments. As of Thursday morning, several fires continue to burn across the region.Evacuations remain near Oroville in Butte County for the Thompson Fire. Evacuation orders were reduced to warnings south of Placerville for the Moccasin Fire burning in El Dorado County. Illegal fireworks lit up the sky across Northern California. This led to several fires being sparked and forcing fire crews to have a busy Fourth of July evening.Some cooling centers across the region have extended their hours through Tuesday.What’s the forecast for Friday?Meteorologist Dirk Verdoorn said Friday could reach temperatures as high as 110 degrees, which is slightly hotter than Thursday was. The average temperature for this time of year is 94 degrees.Saturday is expected to be just as hot as Friday. Verdoorn said the record temperature for July 6 is 105, so that record is expected to be broken. A high-pressure dome of hot air will remain over California, which will keep temperatures hot in the afternoon but also not allow for much relief overnight. That will last through Sunday, but Verdoorn said by Monday, that dome could start moving away, allowing for a somewhat better Delta breeze to slightly cool off temperatures.Friday and Saturday will be slightly hotter, around 107-110 degrees. Next week will stay hot but it will be less intense. The region is looking at highs in the low 100s for Monday and Tuesday.KCRA 3 is expected to issue Impact Days on Monday and Tuesday next week. Impact Days, which are less severe than Alert Days, are issued when weather conditions may impact outdoor travel and activities. Verdoorn said Wednesday is likely going to mark of this heat wave, with its forecast high temperature of 98 degrees.Read more from Tamara Berg about why this heat wave is happening Read more as Heather Waldman looks back at Northern California’s longest heat wave.
