Friday has been the coolest day we've had for a while, relatively speaking, and another warming trend is coming our way for the weekend. Tonight will be clear and mild with lows in the 40s and 50s in the mountains, with 60s and lower 70s in the foothills and valley. Saturday will be a mostly sunny to sunny day with more heat and light to moderate breezes. Mountain highs will be in the 80s and 90s, with more 90s and lower 100s for the foothills and the valley. Sunday will be hotter for all areas by 3 to 5 degrees for most areas, but it will also be the hottest day of the next week for our area.
High pressure will stay in control of our weather early next week, but the ridge won't be quite as strong as it will be over the weekend, and a modest cooling trend will begin. A small trough of low pressure will bring a few more clouds, more breezes, and more of a cooling trend next Wednesday and Thursday. Next Friday will then bring a temperature rebound with highs moving back above average, albeit slightly. Highs in the mountains will stay in the 80s and 90s with Thursday being the coolest day. The foothills and valley will stay in the hot 90s and lower 100s. Lows will remain mild for all.
