Synopsis: There’s little change in the forecast for the remainder of the week with warming temperatures the main story. Looking at the big picture, high pressure across the western US will continue to be the main driver through the weekend promoting dry and quiet weather conditions. Daily highs will remain in the 80s through Saturday before seeing a jump into the low 90s by Sunday. As mentioned yesterday, a weak shortwave will remain trapped across the northern Baja bringing periods of mid and high clouds each day and possibly some unsettled weather next week. Otherwise, plan on a quiet end to October and perfect weather for all the Halloween festivities.
For today plan on mostly sunny skies mixed with some passing high clouds into this afternoon/evening Daytime temperatures will warm into the 86˚F-88˚F range around the Valley. Expect breezy east/northeast winds in the 10-20mph range through the morning hours (especially across our far eastern zones) before easing back into the light category during the afternoon. Overnight lows will dip into the low 60s around the urban corridor with some outlying communities reaching the 50s.
The Halloween forecast continues to look like more treat than trick. Afternoon highs will reach into the 88˚F-90˚F range around the Valley under partly sunny skies mixed with passing high clouds. Variable winds will remain in the light category as evening temperatures dip back into the 70s. Heading into Sunday, plan additional warming with highs reach the low 90s across the lower deserts despite overcast skies and breezy conditions. The unseasonably warm temperatures will continue into the start of next week.
