Sunny skies and hotter temperatures are ahead for your Wednesday forecast. Valley areas dipped into the mid to high 60's overnight, and mountain areas bottomed out in the mid 40's to high 50's. Afternoon high temperatures are projected to be in the mid 90's to low triple digits for the valley, and mid 80's to mid 90's in the mountains. Winds are projected to shift, and will be out of the North to 10mph this afternoon. There will be a very slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm or two popping up in the Northern Mountains late in the day, but it does not look very likely.
Temperatures will peak in the 100 to 103 degree range on Thursday, before dropping by about 3 degrees on Friday. Low pressure tracking South from Canada will bring much cooler temperatures to the region this weekend. Most areas of the valley will have highs in the low to mid 90's by Saturday. There will also be moisture tracking up from what will be former Hurricane Dolores on Sunday. That will leave the region with an increasing chance for showers, and thunderstorms. The best potential for active weather will be in the mountains this weekend. I hope everyone is ready for the hotter temperatures to return, and has a wonderful Wednesday!
