Sunny, dry, and hotter conditions are ahead for your Tuesday. The onshore flow is not as strong as yesterday, and that's resulted in a slightly warmer start to the day for areas of the mid valley. That decrease in the onshore flow will also result in temperatures climbing a little faster than yesterday. Temperatures are starting out in the low to mid 60's for the valley, and in the low 40's to low 50's in the mountains. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the mid 90's to around 100 degrees for the valley and into the mid 80's to mid 90's for the higher elevations. Winds will be light in the morning, and only up to around 10mph out of the South in the afternoon.
Temperatures will be around 2 to 3 degrees hotter on Wednesday, but will then dip back by about 3 to 4 degrees for Thursday and Friday as a low pressure system tracks through the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures will then return to the triple digits for the valley this weekend as a stronger ridge of high pressure heads into Southern California. The official start of your summer is Sunday, and it will feel like it in the valley as widespread triple digit heat is expected. I hope everyone is ready for more hot weather ahead in your extended forecast, and has a great Tuesday!
