Synopsis: After a pleasant weekend with temperatures hovering around seasonal normals (mid 80s), we’re going to be warming back up to start off the new week. Yesterday’s disturbance that brought dry showers and cooler weather has since exited the region and building high pressure will follow quickly in its place. Daily highs will return to the upper 80s today before reaching the lower 90s for Tuesday and again on Wednesday. Luckily another disturbance is slated to arrive late Wednesday into Thursday bringing windy conditions milder conditions to finish out the work week.
For today plan on clear and sunny skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will rebound into the 87˚F-89˚F range around the Valley. West/southwest winds will hover in the 3-8mph range with localized afternoon gusts around 10-15mph. Overnight lows will dip into the low 60s around the urban corridor under clear skies and light winds.
Plan on additional warming for tomorrow with daytime highs climbing into the 90˚F-93˚F range around the Valley under mainly sunny skies. Variable winds will generally remain in the 5-10mph range with afternoon gusts around 15mph. We expect the Valley to reach the low 90s again on Wednesday ahead of a dry disturbance. Otherwise plan on increasing high clouds and windy afternoon/evening conditions with gusts in the 20-30mph range (possible blowing dust). We’ll have more on this in tomorrow’s Outlook.
