84°F – Things are finally calming down locally both with the fires and weather-wise too. The Lowell Fire is now 85% contained with minimal fire behavior with creeping and smoldering. Full containment is expected by Aug 10th. Many of the firefighters have been re-deployed to fight other fires in the state, such as the 60.000 acre Rocky fire near Clear Lake.
Our foothill weather is looking to be cooler and dry over the next several days as several short-wave troughs move throug…h the area with only a few T Storms possible around the Shasta and Lassen areas to our north. Expect highs mostly in the 80’s with breezy SW winds at times with a strong onshore flow.
Expect the cooler weather to last into the weekend, with a warm up possible by mid week next week. Enjoy!
