Forecaster: Henz, D.

Synopsis: 
Temperatures are on the rise the next few days to go along with dry conditions and quiet weather. Climbing heights behind our departed weather system will lend to a return to the 80s for today and again on Friday before we take a run at the 90˚F mark on Saturday. Part of the reason for the spike in temperatures on Saturday is due to southerly flow ahead of our next disturbance which will also pull moisture into the region. Shower and isolated t-storm chances will return later on Saturday and then continue into Sunday. Widespread rain is not expected, instead plan on of a hit or miss scenario around the County. Near normal temperatures and quiet weather to follow for next week.

For today and tomorrow plan on continuing sunny skies across the region. Daytime temperatures will climb into the 80˚F-82˚F range today before warming into the mi 80s on Friday. East winds will be breezy at times through the period with localized gusts around 15-20mph especially during the morning hours. Overnight low temperatures will dip into the low 60s both nights under clear skies and breezy winds.

Our next disturbance arrives on Saturday marking a return to unsettled weather. Afternoon highs will still be quite warm in the upper 80s to low 90s around the Valley. A combination of daytime sun, increasing moisture, and forcing from our system will lead to afternoon and evening storm activity across portions of the County. Localized moderate rain, small hail, and gusty winds will be possible with any stronger storms, though we expect many locales will remain rain free. Milder temperatures will follow on Sunday with highs back into the mid 80s with continuing isolated shower chances.
