Synopsis: Yesterday’s forecast remains on track for today and the rest of the work week with warming temperatures the main weather story. Looking at the big picture, high pressure will begin building east into the Desert Southwest later today and linger through Friday promoting the aforementioned warm up. Daily high temperatures will flirt with triple digits this afternoon, before seeing a boost into the low 100s Wednesday, and top out in the 103˚F-106˚F range for Thursday and Friday. Otherwise, plan on dry and breezy conditions to go along with plenty of sun.
For today plan clear and sunny skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will quickly warm into the 98˚F-100˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in the 5-10mph range with localized breezier conditions (15-20mph gusts) this afternoon/evening. Overnight lows will dip into the mid to low 70s around the urban corridor under clear skies and light winds.
Plan on a near repeat tomorrow clear skies and dry conditions. Daytime highs will warm a degree or two into the 100˚F-103˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will remain in the 5-10mph range with localized gusts around 15mph. The warming trend will kick into high gear on Thursday and Friday with highs jumping into the 102˚F-106˚F range across the lower deserts. More on this to come.
