Synopsis: After a rather warm holiday weekend expect a modest cool down today and tomorrow along with an uptick in breezes courtesy of a weak disturbance passing through the Desert Southwest. Moving ahead, high pressure will briefly rebuild across the region for Thursday and Friday lending to a return of mid-70s and sunny conditions. Big changes are then expected into this coming weekend as a stronger disturbance and attendant cold front usher in a much cold air mass, windy conditions, and perhaps some light rain chances across portions of the County starting on Saturday.
For today plan on partly sunny skies mixed with passing mid and high clouds. Afternoon temperatures will warm into the 69˚F-72˚F range around the Valley with mid to upper 60s across the higher terrain locales. East/northeast winds will be breezy at times in the 7-15mph range and gusts around 20mph. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 40s around the urban corridor under partly cloudy skies and continuing breezy conditions.
For tomorrow plan on mostly sunny skies with a few passing high clouds. Daytime temperatures will be similar to today’s reaching the 70˚F-72˚F range around the Valley. Breezy east/northeast winds will continue into the afternoon before easing back into the light category after sunset. As highlighted above, high pressure will quickly build back across the region for Thursday and into Friday. High temperatures will rebound back into the mid-70s around the Valley under mainly sunny skies to go along with quiet weather conditions. Warmer weather won’t last long though as our next system will bring a sharp drop in temperatures this upcoming weekend. More on this in tomorrow’s Outlook.
