Modesto temperatures drop slightly, and a thunderstorm possible Monday night

It’s going to be another hot week in the Northern San Joaquin Valley, but so far there is only one triple-digit day in the National Weather Service forecast. Clouds that have moved into the area account for the change, and they may bring thunderstorms to Modesto Monday night.

It’s going to be another hot week in the Northern San Joaquin Valley, but so far there is only one triple-digit day in the National Weather Service forecast. Clouds that have moved into the area account for the change, and they may bring thunderstorms to Modesto Monday night.

National Weather Service forecasters call for highs in the upper 90s Monday and Tuesday, a couple degrees lower than the weekend high temperatures. Monday night, there’s a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms.

The triple-digit day is Wednesday, when the high is expected to hit 100. There’s not much relief overnight, as lows are dipping only into the low 70s early in the week. That changes by Thursday, when the low is expected to be 66.
