The National Weather Service in Hanford is predicting that “around one-half of an inch of rain is possible in the San Joaquin Valley south of Madera County (on) Monday.”

And, higher totals of rain are possible in the Sierra Nevada and Kern County mountains, NWS says.

Once this current blast of triple-digit temps accompanied by elevated humidity ends on Thursday or Friday, get ready for perfect summer weather in Fresno through the end of August.

Forecasting the weather more than a couple of days ahead is always a roll of the dice.

But The Weather Channel forecast through Aug. 29  calls for afternoon temperatures in the 90s nearly every day and never exceeding 100.

The National Weather Service in Hanford concurs — at least through Monday. NWS predicts afternoon highs in the 90s and overnight lows in the 60s Friday through Monday.

Electricity Supply Appears in Good Shape

Until then, Valley residents must endure three more days of agony.

The good news is, the California Independent System Operator, which manages the state’s electrical grid, says there’s sufficient power to meet the demand over the next few days.

However, if the weather or grid conditions worsen, the ISO could issue a Flex Alert asking for people to voluntarily reduce their energy usage during the late afternoon and evening.

Flex Alerts usually go out a day before they’re needed. Sign up for text notifications at www.FlexAlert.org.

Energy Saving Tips

PG&E says that air conditioning accounts for about 40% of summer energy usage. These tips can reduce energy consumption at peak times and lower your electricity bill:

  • Set the AC thermostat to 78 degrees or higher from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. health permitting. Cool your home to below-normal levels in the morning. Close windows, doors, and window coverings, and use fans to help keep your home cool while your AC unit takes a break.
  • Replace air filters, and make sure air vents and registers are not blocked by furniture, curtains, or rugs. Dirty air filters make the air conditioner work harder to circulate the air.
  • Weatherproof your home to keep warm outside and cool air inside. Apply weatherstripping to doors, caulk around windows and doors, and install a door sweep on garage doors.
