One more day of triple digits for the valley floor.  Expect low to mid 90s for the valley floor by Wednesday.

Gusty north and northwest winds continue for the valley floor today.  Keeping our overnight lows warm and humidity values low.  Relative humidity values, for some spots, will fall to the single digits for the 7th day in a row.  RED FLAG WARNING(click here) continues through 5:00 pm today.


The persistent ridge of high pressure giving us the triple digit heat is finally showing signs of giving way to a series of weak storms riding to our north.  This will allow our temperatures to drop to the 90s as early as Wednesday and struggling to get out of the 80s byThursday and Friday.  The weekend will see highs in the low 90s under mostly sunny skies.

The forecast gets a little tricky next week because there is a big difference between our two main long range models (GFS & Euro).  The Euro wants to give us another ridge of high pressure which would mean the return of the triple digits.  The GFS wants to keep a series of storms riding to our north keeping our temperatures in the low to 90s.  We’ll keep you posted.  Until then, enjoy the cooler weather this week.
