Weather has been wonderful today with some sprinkles in the Valley this morning. Tomorrow the sun stays out and temperatures stay in the 70s.

Once we start your work week, we will see a warming trend and sunny skies throughout the following weekend. Monday a ridge of high-pressure settle in the area which keeps the clouds away, begins to dry us out Monday and starts to warm us up. Highs on Monday look to reach the mid-80s in the Valley. By Wednesday highs reach the upper-80s in the Valley before we gradually cool on Thursday. Highs on Saturday look to be in the low-80s.

High fire danger is also in your forecast, with the worst days on Wednesday and early Thursday. A strong ridge of high pressure to our West and a trough of low pressure to our East will cause a "tight" pressure gradient across our area. This will lead to wind gusts up to 30 mph on top of already dry conditions with relative humidity values expected to be in the teens.
