People in Three Rivers, across California, and in Nevada and Utah reported what looked like a meteor shower on Wednesday, July 20, at about 9:30 pm. It was actually a Chinese rocket that re-entered the atmosphere near California, creating the mysterious bright object streaking across the night sky.
Daytime high temperatures will continue to hover around the century mark for the next 10 days or so.
SoCal fires impact local air quality
Smoke from the Soberanes Fire burning in Monterey County is affecting air quality throughout the San Joaquin Valley while smoke from the Sand Fire in Los Angeles County is affecting air quality in the southern Valley, causing high particulate matter and ozone levels, reported the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. The smoke, coupled with high heat and a strong high pressure system, are causing smoke emissions to remain trapped in the Valley basin.
These conditions are expected to persist into next week.
