Forecaster:  Field, B.
Today will be another nice day before unsettled weather returns on Wednesday through Friday. This is a dynamic situation as the latest model guidance is now suggesting that the low will move inland over the desert southwest Wednesday night along with a brief pause before retrograding back towards CA Thursday into Friday. It will finally kick off to the east over the AZ / Mexico border Friday night into Saturday. Based on current analysis, rainfall chances and amounts are looking even less impressive, upwards 0.10"-0.30" and will favor western portions of the County at least initially, but rainfall chances still remain for the Valley through Friday. An attendant cold front Wednesday afternoon will result in some thunderstorms, a quick drop in temperatures and windy conditions. The rest of the week will be cooler with highs in the mid-‘60s to low ‘70s and breezy conditions. This situation is evolving and may continue to change so stay tuned for more updates.

For today, expect plenty of sunshine with mostly clear skies county-wide. Afternoon highs will reach the 81°F-83°F range for the Valley. Breezy conditions this afternoon with variable winds in the 10-16 mph. Overnight lows will dip into the low to mid-‘50s around the urban corridor under clear skies and calm conditions.

For tomorrow, expect increasing clouds in the morning leading to partly to mostly cloudy skies throughout the day for the County. Afternoon temperatures will quickly warm to the 73°F - 77°F range before taking quick step-back into the mid-‘60s as a result of the passing front. This will be accompanied by windy conditions in the 20-30 mph for the Valley and limited showers. Thursday will again be breezy but mostly clear with afternoon highs 65°F - 68°F range for the Valley. Friday again will be breezy and cool with continuing chance of precipitation. As previously mentioned, we’ll continue to monitor the situation and provide more details in the next outlook as the situation develops.
