After a dry weekend in the Bay area, not much is expected to change for the new week as the stretch of dry weather continues.

While the lack of rain is not uncommon for the Bay Area this time of year, the dry weather will only serve to worsen the drought.

The city has not received measurable precipitation in July since 2007 when 0.01 of an inch of rain was recorded.

Exceptional long-term drought has been increasing across the state. No part of California is considered to be in any less than severe drought, with extreme to exceptional drought covering a majority of the land.

The mornings early this week will feature morning clouds that will burn off in the afternoon hours as the sun soars into the sky. Highs will stay consistently in the low 70s, though AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will be slightly above the actual temperature. Lows during the overnight hours will be around 60.

Winds will be slight with a few gusts into the 12 to 15 mph range.

The Bully Fire raging in Shasta County is 86 percent contained, having already consumed 12,661 acres. Dry, rugged terrain is providing ample fuel for the fire's growth and is providing some difficulty for containment efforts.
