There is one word to describe this forecast — hot! Some areas have broken records as many areas have reached triple digits. And the hot temperatures are going to continue through the weekend! There is yes, again, another threat of breaking more records again tomorrow — more triple digits expected. Then finally a cool down is anticipated as a low pressure system comes through with an attached cold front. This will drop temperatures down into the 80s on Monday and then around 80 degrees by Tuesday. This front is expected to be mostly dry, but a few storms are not out of question. Another feature with this front is more smoke in the atmosphere. The front is holding back some of the smoke so we will continue to hold onto smoky conditions. Once we continue through the week a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms may be possible — including another increase in temperatures by next weekend- but only to around 90 degrees. An average high temperature is in the mid 80s and lows in the mid 50.
Tonight, clear skies and temperatures warm, in the 60s, and winds southeast at 5-10 mph.
Tomorrow, hot, around the triple digits! And winds south at 15-25 mph with winds occasionally gusting to 35 mph. Skies sunny, but with smoke in the air.
Sunday night, increasing clouds overnight with a few late night showers possible as the cold front sweeps through. Lows in the mid 60s and winds north at 5-15 mph.
Monday, smokey skies and a partly cloudy sky with a chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. Winds north at 1-8 mph. Highs in the 80s.
Monday night, a partly cloudy sky. With lows cooler, in the 50s, and winds north and light.
