.SYNOPSIS...
Moderate heat risk persists today over the northern half of the
Sacramento Valley. Afternoon thunderstorms possible over higher
terrain, mainly Sierra Nevada, through Tuesday. Near normal
temperatures midweek, then warming up again by next weekend.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Skies are clear across interior NorCal early this morning other
than some lingering remnant high clouds left over from Sunday
afternoon`s Sierra thunderstorms. IR difference imagery shows
stratus has returned to much of the NorCal coast, and profiler
data indicates the marine layer has deepened slightly. The Delta
Breeze is stronger at Travis AFB compared to 24 hours ago, but
cooling has yet to be realized. Elsewhere, current temperatures
are running slightly warmer across the region compared to early
Sunday, and generally range from the lower 50s in the colder
mountain valleys to the mid 80s across milder portions of the
Sacramento Valley.

Little overall change expected today as mid/upper COL lingers
across NorCal. Enough elevated moisture/instability remains within
this area of weak flow for a few thunderstorms again later today
over the mountains as daytime heating triggers deep convection.
Isolated storms may be possible further to the west and north
today, over the northern Coast Range and extreme southern Cascade
Range.

High temperatures today will be a mixed bag as the return of the
Delta Breeze spreads cooling into the Delta region, and slightly
cooling into the Sacramento and Stockton areas. Elsewhere, hot
weather will continue today with highs similar to Sunday`s.

Weak trough develops along the West Coast on Tuesday and
Wednesday, pushing most of the late day thunderstorm activity
back well to the east of the forecast area by Wednesday. The
trough will also result in strengthening onshore flow by this
evening which will bring cooler temperatures (back to around
average for early to mid-August) for a couple of days.

Trough forecast to weaken by Thursday leading to slight warming as
onshore flow slackens.

&&

.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Friday THROUGH Monday)...
Upper COL over interior NorCal Friday retrogrades offshore as
upper ridging from the Desert SW builds over the CWA through the
weekend into early next week. Dry weather expected with a gradual
warming trend. Greatest departure from normals, upwards of 10 plus
degrees by next Monday, will be over the southern half of the CWA
under stronger subsidence.
