| ***Permissive Burn Day ***
High pressure will continue to dominate the weather pattern today. The main difference from Sunday will be an increase in northerly winds this afternoon. These winds will lead to afternoon temps hitting the mid-upper 90s, perhaps flirting with the century mark in some spots. AM stability is a bit stronger this morning, and PM levels have come up a bit as well. Dispersion will be less favorable today.
*** Permissive Burn Day***
High pressure will dominate the West Coast for most, if not all, of the work week. Even warmer temps are expected for Tuesday as the ridge peaks in strength over the region. The ridge will strengthen further for the latter half of the week, bringing another round of 100-degree temps to the North State. Overall...expect a week of poor dispersion and deteriorating air quality as a strong ridge dominates the weather pattern.
|Mixing Height Discussion:|
|Valley: Mixing heights will reach 2500-3000 feet by afternoon.
|North Valley:North to northwesterly 8-14 mph.
Delta: West to northwesterly 8-12 mph.
