Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Sacramento CA
228 PM PDT SUN JUN 26 2016

Hot and mainly dry weather this week. A few afternoon mountain
thunderstorms possible midweek near the crest.


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.


A broad area of high pressure will continue to be the main
influence in the long term forecast period. A weak trough of low
pressure will move into the region from the eastern Pacific on
Friday, which will bring slightly cooler temperatures. High
temperatures Thursday will range from the upper 90s to the mid
100s, which is between 10 to 15 degrees above normal. Temperatures
will cool into the upper 90s to low 100s for Friday and the
weekend, which is still about 10 degrees above normal.
Precipitation chances are unlikely during the long term period.


VFR conditions expected during the next 24 hours. Light wind
shifts expected at the terminals.
