Synopsis: Yesterday’s disturbance included widespread light rain and a subsequent cool down which was a welcomed treat. Heading into today, our disturbance is quickly ejecting east into the lower Great Plains as high pressure begins building back across the Desert Southwest. Milder temperatures will persist today before a big warming trend gets underway for the remainder of the work week. Daily highs will quickly jump back into the 90s during this period.
For today plan on clearing conditions and plenty of sun across the region. Afternoon temperatures will warm into the 79˚F-81˚F range around the Valley with mid to upper 70s across higher terrain locales. West winds will ease back into the 5-10mph range with a few afternoon gusts around 15mph. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 50s to low 60s around the urban corridor under clear skies and light winds.
For tomorrow plan on mainly sunny skies and dry conditions across the region. Daytime highs will rebound into the 91˚F-93˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in in the 2-8mph range with occasional afternoon/evening gusts around 10-15mph. Friday looks to be the warmest day of the week with a ridge of high pressure sitting over the state. Highs will easily reach the mid to upper 90s under mainly clear skies and light winds. Moving ahead, a pair of dry weather disturbances will move across the region this weekend but will only bring some high clouds and modest drop in temperatures. More on this in tomorrow’s extended Outlook.
