We had a hot weekend with a lot of areas reaching the triple digits for a few days in a row.
Overnight, we had some isolated storms move through mostly east of the cascades. The chances for thunderstorms continue today and possibly into Tuesday.
Luckily today's high temperatures will not be as hot as the weekend but we are still dealing with some hot temperatures out there.
Today, the coast will be in the 60s and 70s.
The Klamath Basin will be in the 80s and 90s.
The Rogue Valley will be in the 90s.
Northern California will be in the 90s and triple digits today for Fort Jones and Happy Camp.
We will have a number of warnings and watches over the next few days. The main one today is a red flag warning that will go into effect 2 p.m. this afternoon and will last until 11 a.m. Tuesday morning. The concern is mainly for fires starting from isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. Since we have been dry and hot the past few weeks, we have a lot of possible fuel for lightning to spark a flame.
We will have a fire weather watch go into effect Tuesday morning and will last until Tuesday evening.
If we see thunderstorms this afternoon, deadly lightning will be produced from it. So remember, if thunder roars, head indoors!
Stay Safe this afternoon.
Happy Monday everyone.
