Sunny skies, hotter temperatures, and stronger winds are ahead for your Monday, and work week forecast. High pressure building into the Pacific Northwest will result in stronger winds out of the North, lower humidity values, and temperatures soaring into the triple digits over the next few days. Today's winds are projected to be up to around 15mph out of the North, with gusts topping 25mph in the valley this afternoon. The strong winds, increasing heat, and low humidity will result in higher fire danger.
Temperatures have dipped into the mid 60's to low 70's in the valley overnight, and low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the mid to high 90's for the valley, and into the high 70's to low 90's in the mountains.
Triple digit heat is ahead for the valley from Tuesday through at least the start of the weekend. The peak of the heat will arrive on Thursday, with valley locations climbing into the 106 to 111 degree range. I hope everyone stays safe in the hot temperatures ahead, and is very careful with the higher fire danger returning to the region.
