Yesterday’s forecast remains on track for today and through the remainder of the work week with quiet weather conditions on tap. Looking at the big picture, the Monsoon ridge will remain suppressed to our south and west lending to dry westerly flow across the Desert Southwest. In fact, this upper-level pattern is more typical of late May/early June. Long story short, Monsoon activity will continue to be put on hold through at least early next week. In the meantime plan for near average temperatures, breezy conditions, and plenty of sun in through the extended forecast.
For today plan on clear and sunny skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will climb into 109˚F-111˚F range around the Valley with higher terrain areas into the low 100s. West/southwest winds will be breezy in the 8-16mph range with afternoon/evening gusts around 20-30mph possible. Overnight low temperatures will dip into the mid to low 80s around the urban corridor under clear skies and breezy winds.
For tomorrow plan on a near repeat of today. Daytime highs will drop a degree or two into the 107˚F-109˚F range around the Valley. Breezy conditions will continue through the day tomorrow and into the evening with localized gusts as high as 20-30mph. Looking ahead, the upper-level pattern will remain nearly unchanged through the end of the work week. Daily highs on Thursday and Friday will hover in the 107˚F-109˚F range under clear skies.
