(AccuWeather) – The hot, dry weather that contributed to the deadly California firestorm shows no sign of letting up into the first part of August.

“Unfortunately, not much is expected to change in regards to the weather pattern for a majority of the West, with hot, dry weather keeping the wildfire threat at extreme levels through the first days of August,” AccuWeather Meteorologist and western U.S. blogger Jordan Root said.

While a sweep of cooler air will quell the 90-degree heat in the Pacific Northwest at midweek, Root said the heat relief will not make it south into California or the rest of the Southwest.

Temperatures in the triple digits will remain into the first weekend of August across northern and central portions of California.

This includes in Redding where the explosive Carr Fire continues to blaze a path of destruction. [more]
