Storm Tracker Forecast: Cloudier today but a heat wave is upon us

Cloudier today with highs in the upper-90s but reaching triple-digits through the weekend into next week.

Posted: Aug 21, 2019 7:15 AM

Today we can expect some more cloud cover but despite the clouds we'll see warmer temperatures due to a weaker Delta breeze. Weaker winds is good for fire danger conditions, however but it will still be bone dry out there. Highs will range in the mid-to-upper 90s in the Valley and closer to 90 in the mountains.

Nothing particularly complicated about the forecast, however. High pressure will be building into our region from the desert southwest and from the Eastern Pacific. In August, high pressure means hot, sunny and dry. The high pressure looks to strengthen through the week and into the weekend, still lingering here by next week. Due to this, we will see long-lasting triple-digit heat into the weekend and next week. The length of the heat wave is still unknown as there is no cool-down in the foreseeable future. Prepare yourself and your pets for the heat, as relief will be hard to come by for the next week.
