Today will be very similar to yesterday except no cloud cover. I am expecting nothing but sunny skies with highs in the mid-80s today. The big difference today, however, will be the winds. Strong North winds will gust up to 30 mph in some valley locations. This will dry us out and prime us for a big warming trend into Friday.
Tomorrow will still be sunny & breezy, but not as windy as today. We will be very dry will low humidity values and will be warming into the low-to-mid 90s.
Friday, the ridge of high pressure that has been moving in, reaches its peak strength. This will lead to temperatures in the valley soaring into the upper-90s with a few 100 degree temperatures possible, particularly in the north valley. This would break some records. Saturday will still be hot but a degree or two cooler than Friday. So the chances for triple digits are unlikely on Saturday. Still, though. If you have any outdoor plans on Friday or Saturday, plan accordingly. Bring plenty of water with you, wear light clothing, and find the shade if you can. Also, don't forget to protect your skin! Wear a hat and some sunscreen, as needed.
Sunday is Mother's Day! It will still be hot but highs will be dropping into the low-90s with partly cloudy skies. It could also be a bit breezy at times.
Monday and Tuesday we have big changes. Highs will be in the low-80s on Monday then into the low-70s on Tuesday. The cooling trend is brought on by a very strong disturbance moving into the area from the West. The added cloud cover and return of the southerly delta breeze will also help with the cooling. Rain chances also look possible in the valley on Monday and likely in the mountains. The showers will be light but could become more widespread on Tuesday. Some weather models do not agree with this solution, so there is high uncertainty in the forecast, at the moment. Weather models are really only decent 5 to maybe 6 days out before things start looking very wonky and unlikely. I will be monitoring the chance for showers and cooler weather closely and keep you updated this week.
