Area Forecast Discussion

.SYNOPSIS...
Hot and mainly dry weather this week. A few afternoon mountain
thunderstorms possible midweek.

&&

.Discussion...
High pressure will remain over the region through at least mid
week. Temperatures look like they will warm a little each day so
look for temperatures to range between 100 and 105 for most
valley locations. The far north end of the valley may range
between 105 and 110 Tuesday and Wednesday.

We will continue to have some flow through the delta each day
but marine layer will continue to be shallow at around 1000 ft
deep. Airflow through the delta may increase on Wednesday to help
start a cooling trend for some areas near the delta.

Some monsoonal moisture will be making its way northward along the
crest Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Some isolated afternoon
thunderstorms may be possible south of Lake Tahoe.

&&
.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Thursday THROUGH Sunday)

Moderating temperatures are forecast across the region during the
extended period as models are in general agreement shifting the
upper ridge eastward into the Rockies and developing a weak trough
over the eastern Pacific. This will lead to slight cooling of the
overall airmass along with some cooling resulting from an increase
in onshore flow. Readings will be near average for late-June/
early-July.

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions expected during the next 24 hours.
&&

.STO Watches/Warnings/Advisories...
None.
