Warmer temperatures expected through the weekend

LAKE COUNTY – As the remnants of Tropical Storm Felicia moved onshore with high-level clouds on Wednesday, temperatures are forecast to top off near the average temperature of 93 on both Thursday and Friday, with a return to warmer temperatures through the weekend.


The National Weather Service in Sacramento (NWS) expects highs in the mid-90s in Lake County today through Saturday, with temperatures on the cooler side at lower elevations.


Average temperatures for today include a low of 53 degrees and a high of 93 degrees. The record high for Aug. 13 was 111 degrees in 1933 the record low was 41 degrees in 1921.


The gusty afternoon winds on Tuesday and Wednesday cleared out the upper-level haze that the recent weather patterns have brought in to the Clear Lake basin and much of Northern California from fires burning in Shasta and Santa Barbara counties.


However, the Summit fire in nearby Colusa County in the Mendocino National forest, which had increased to 40 acres by 6:30 p.m. last night according to Cal Fire, may create more haze if not contained soon.


Gusty afternoon winds are expected to continue, according to the NWS today and Friday, but Saturday and Sunday should be calm.


Highs for Saturday are predicted to be in the mid-90s and a few degrees warmer on Sunday. Low overnight temperatures are expected near 60.
