The hot weather is not over yet but Monday was the last chance for any thunderstorms in the Lodi area this month, which is both good and bad news.

“Typically, those storms are the cause for most forest fires, but they also can bring moisture to the area,” said John Dlugounski, a meteorologist with AccuWeather.com, a private weather forecasting service. “It will be very warm and dry for the rest of the week and continue into the weekend.”

Winds from the north-northwest are expected to reach 5 to 12 mph for the rest of the week, and humidity should rise from between 20 and 30 percent to between 30 and 40 percent, Dlugounski said.

Temperatures should remain in the low 90s through Wednesday, edge up to the mid-90s on Thursday and reach 95 by Friday, he said.

After Friday, temperatures are expected to drop into the upper 80s.

Additionally, the San Joaquin Valley from Lodi to Bakersfield has been designated as an area of high air pollution through Wednesday.

Residents should avoid idling when dropping off or picking up students, and they should refrain from using drive-through services, according to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District.

The district encourages carpooling and using public transportation, and employers should shift operations to early morning or late evening, when ozone levels are lower, according to the air pollution district. Employers should also offer flexible work schedules through Wednesday.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
