Sunny skies, and much hotter temperatures are ahead for your Thursday forecast. Temperatures only dipped into the high 60's to low 70's in the valley, and into the low 50's to low 60's in most mountain areas. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to climb into the high 90's to around 105 degrees in the valley, and into the mid 80's to high 90's across the mountains. Sunny skies, and above average temperatures will be ahead through the end of the work week. Winds will be out of the North to 10mph, and humidity values will fall to around 15 percent in the afternoons. The hot, and dry conditions will increase fire danger over the next couple of days.
Temperatures will only be a couple of degrees cooler on Friday. Weekend high temperatures will top out in the mid to high 90's this weekend. Low pressure will track South from Canada over the weekend, and could tap into tropical moisture heading North from what's left of Hurricane Dolores. There will be a chance of showers returning this weekend, with the best potential ahead for the mountains on Sunday. Showers will be possible through the beginning of next week, and temperatures will cool into the 80's by Wednesday. I hope everyone stays safe in the hotter conditions ahead for this afternoon, and has a great Thursday!
