July 15, 2019 – Dry weather with seasonably hot temperatures continue across the region this week. Breezy winds through the Delta and over the Sierra crest at times.
Clear skies cover interior NorCal early this morning. Current temperatures are pretty similar to readings from 24 hours ago and range from the 40s in the mountain valleys to the 60s to mid 70s across the Central Valley and foothill thermal belts.
Not a whole lot of change in the weather is expected this week as a weak trough persists along the West Coast.
Satellite imagery and profiler data indicate the marine layer has mostly mixed out along the coast, so any local cooling from increased marine influence will wait until it returns.
Extended Discussion (Friday through Monday)
Weak upper troughing over the Pacific Northwest will bring a little cooling to start off the extended period with daytime highs Friday a little below season normals.
Any precipitation will remain well north of the forecast area.
Next weekend and early next week will see a little warming as the upper trough shifts east but will still see daytime highs near or a little below normal.
Stable southwest flow aloft should keep any shower activity out of the forecast.
