Extreme heat, sunny skies, and light winds are ahead for your Monday forecast. Temperatures are starting out the day very warm, with low 70's in the valley, and high 40's to high 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures are expected to be between 100 to 105 degrees in the valley, and in the high 80's to around 100 degrees in the mountains. Records for high temperatures will not be broken for this date, but these will be the hottest conditions the region has seen this year. Winds are projected to be light for the entire region, but 10mp winds out of the West could develop in some mountain areas.
Temperatures will continue to be hot on Tuesday, but current projections has them falling short of the century mark in the valley. The potential for thunderstorms could return to mountain areas as early as this evening, but looks much more likely for Tuesday. Active weather will be possible in the valley on Tuesday evening, and widespread showers/thunderstorms look very possible on Wednesday. Temperatures will only climb into the high 80's on Wednesday, but will quickly rebound into the high 90's Thursday, and into the triple digits by Friday. I hope everyone makes sure to stay hydrated, and dresses for the heat. Remember that the elderly, small children, and people with health issues are especially impacted by the heat. Have a marvelous Monday!
