Hazardous weather outlook issued for county

LAKE COUNTY – Due to a strong high pressure system over Northern California, the National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a hazardous weather outlook warning for Lake County and much of Northern California for Friday.

Clouds overnight Wednesday helped to mitigate overnight lows. Daytime temperatures rose higher on Thursday, and will continue throughout the day Friday, the National Weather Service in Sacramento (NWS) predicted.

The NWS has issued both a hazardous weather outlook and a special weather statement for Lake County Friday, with high temperatures close to the century mark.

A strong ridge of high pressure, which is resulting in higher-than-average temperatures, will reach a crescendo today with highs in the upper-90s to near 100 degrees, according to the NWS.

Temperatures in the Central Valley and Sierra Foothills may break records for this date later Friday, the NWS predicted.

Relief from the daytime temperatures should come as the high pressure system moves out on Saturday and temperatures return closer to average, the NWS stated, with highs in the mid-80s.

By Sunday, decreasing daytime temperatures will continue, with The Weather Channel forecasting a chance of rain.

Overnight temperatures will only drop down to the 60s Friday and tomorrow, with lows reaching near 50 by Sunday morning according to the NWS.

High daytime temperatures on Sunday will be much lower, only reaching in to the mid-70s according to the NWS.
