Storm Tracker Forecast: Triple digit heat returns this weekend

We're getting much hotter this weekend, but a welcome cooling trend returns in your extended forecast.

Posted: Aug 2, 2019 6:39 AM

No major changes are expected for your Friday, but temperatures will heat up for your weekend. The low pressure area that has kept our high temperatures somewhat in check is ejecting to the North, and high pressure is building out to the West from the 4 corners region. That will result in a sharp uptick in temperatures over the next few days. We're starting out with mild conditions early today. Skies are mostly clear and temperatures are close to what we had for the start of your Thursday. Valley areas have dipped into the mid to high 60's overnight, and mountain areas have dipped into the 40's to 50's this morning. Winds are out of the Northeast up to around 10mph early today, but are expected to become out of the Southwest to 10mph this afternoon. Humidity did recover well overnight, but is expected to dip back into the 15 to 30 percent range this afternoon. High temperatures are projected to top out in the mid 90's to around 100 degrees in the valley this afternoon, and mountain areas will end up in the mid 80's to low 90's later today.

Temperatures will climb by around 4 to 5 degrees on Saturday. Most of the valley will have high temperatures ranging from the 100 to 105 degree range on Saturday afternoon. Sunny skies and above average temperatures are expected on Sunday, but the current projection has high temperatures dropping by around 2 to 3 degrees compared to Saturday. Some parts of the valley will fall back into the high 90's on Sunday. High 90's to low triple digits and mostly sunny skies are ahead for the valley to start next week. A cooling trend will ramp up towards the middle of next week and that is expected to result in temperatures topping out a few degrees below average. Low to mid 90's are projected for Wednesday and we could see a dip into the high 80's to low 90's towards the end of next week. There are also hints of potential for showers and thunderstorms returning to parts of our region late next week, but that is still a little far out to say we'll have wet weather with any certainty.
