Old Forecaster: Midweek 10-day Redding Weather Outlook Sept. 1 – 10, 2011

This outlook is issued every Wednesday to update the Sunday weekly forecast and provide a weather outlook for the next 10 days.

High pressure will be along the west coast or over the western U.S. through the period. So the short version of the 10 day forecast is: warmer … cooler … warmer. Redding will be sunny throughout.

Thursday (the 1st), Redding will have high temperatures in the upper 90s. Friday and Saturday will be a little warmer with highs 98 to 102. Sunday and Monday will see a little cooling with high temperatures back down to the mid to upper 90s. Tuesday (the 6th) through the 10th will be sunny and hot with high temperatures back to 98 to 102. Minimum temperatures will be in the 60s. Gusty north winds will be felt Thursday (the 1st) through midday Friday (the 2nd).
