Sunny skies, hotter temperatures, and low humidity values are ahead for your Wednesday forecast. Temperatures have dipped into the mid 60's to low 70's in the valley, and into the low 40's to low 50's in the higher elevations. Afternoon high temperatures will be 2 to 3 degrees warmer than yesterday's. Valley areas will climb into the high 90's to around 102 degrees, and mountain areas will be in the mid 80's to mid 90's. Winds will be up to around 10mph out of the South, and humidity values will drop to around 15 percent this afternoon. The hot temperatures, and dry conditions will continue to contribute to high fire danger across the region.
A low pressure system tracking through the Pacific Northwest will help to usher in a very modest dip in high temperatures on Thursday/Friday. Temperatures will then rebound into the high 90's to low triple digits on Saturday. Another modest cooling trend will arrive in the region for your first day of summer on Sunday. Most valley areas will be in the mid to high 90's for the start of next week. Temperatures are projected to stay above average through the middle of next week. I hope everyone has found a good way to beat the heat, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
