Synopsis: Yesterday’s forecast remains on track for today and through the remainder of the week with generally quiet weather conditions expected. Our disturbance from yesterday has since lifted northeast of the region and mid-level heights will begin trending up resulting in warming temperatures. Plan on one more day with low to mid 90s before daily highs jump towards the 100˚F mark for Thursday and Friday. Looking ahead, guidance still shows our next disturbance arriving this weekend bringing breezy conditions and another welcomed cool down.
For today plan on clear and sunny skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will only warm into the 93˚F-95˚F range around the Valley with upper 80s to low 90s across the foothill and higher terrain locales. Variable winds will hover in the 2-7mph range with no gusts of any consequence throughout the day. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 60s around the urban corridor under clear skies and light winds.
Weak high pressure will build across the region tomorrow into Friday lending to warming temperatures. Plan on another round of sunny skies on Thursday as daytime highs rebound into the 98˚F-100˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds generally remain in the 3-8mph range with localized afternoon/evening gusts around 10-15mph. Similar conditions will persist into Friday with afternoon highs again climbing towards the 100˚F mark to go along with increased breezes. Heading into this weekend plan on a modest cooling trend as another dry disturbance moves into the lower Great Basin. We’ll have more details on this in tomorrow’s extended Outlook.
