Temperatures in the valley are dipping into the high 50's to mid 60's this morning, and are projected to climb into the 97 to 104 degree range this afternoon. Winds will be up to around 10 to 15mph out of the Northwest, and humidity values will fall to between 5 to 15 percent. Most areas of the valley will be close to, if not slightly under 10 percent later today. The hot temperatures and very dry conditions will continue to leave the region under elevated fire danger over the next several days.

Humidity values will continue to stay very low, and winds will continue to be up to around 10mph out of the North. Some clouds, and a modest drop in temperatures are ahead for the weekend. Valley areas will fall into the high 90's to just over 100 degrees on Saturday. Skies will clear out on Sunday morning, but temperatures will only climb into the mid to high 90's for Sunday afternoon. The cooling trend will continue through the middle of next week, as valley temperatures only climb into the high 80's to low 90's.
