Cooler weather returns for weekend

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – After two extremely hot days with temperatures in excess of 100 degrees in many areas, a rapid cool-down is forecast for the weekend, bringing a return to below-normal daytime temperatures beginning today.


Like much of California, daytime temperatures were well above normal on Tuesday throughout Lake County, although no records were broken here.


Around the rest of the state numerous records tumbled down as the mercury shot up due to a strong high pressure system that stalled over much of California and continued to heat up Northern California, including Lake County, on Wednesday.


According to Bob Benjamin, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, the high heat will not last and will cool down considerably through Sunday. That's when a strong trough from the Gulf of Alaska is predicted to settle over Northern California, with some areas forecast to see a 40-degree temperature drop.


High daytime temperatures should only reach the mid- to upper-80s Thursday, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento, and will trend downward as the cold trough moves in to Lake County.


The weekend will feel almost cold by comparison when temperatures only reach the mid- to upper-70s throughout Lake County, and overnight lows dip in to the upper 40s.


Average temperatures for this time of year are in the low-90s, with overnight lows in the mid-50s.


As the cooler weather settles over Northern California, a slight chance of rain is possible in the northern mountains, but forecasters predict it will be mostly clear to partly cloudy in Lake County throughout the weekend.
