Above average temperatures and quiet weather conditions will be the norm this week. Looking at the big picture, a large ridge of high pressure remains in place across the western US with a weak cut-off low pressure area further south across Baja, Mexico. The ridge will remain fixed through at least the middle of the work weak helping to promote temperatures 10-12˚F above the seasonable normal of 66˚F. That disturbance to our south will help facilitate increased high clouds today before becoming mainly irrelevant as it slides further south into tomorrow. Long story short, plan on picture perfect weather across the region this week.
For today, plan on cloudy/overcast skies this morning before sunnier conditions into this afternoon/early evening. Afternoon temperatures will easily climb into the 74˚F-76˚F range around the Valley with low 70s across the higher terrain locales. East/southeast winds will generally hover in the 3-8mph range with localized gusts around 15mph later tonight/overnight. Overnight lows will bottom out in the low 50s to upper 40s around the urban corridor under clearing skies.
For tomorrow plan on a return to mostly sunny skies across the region. Daytime highs will warm a degree or two into the 76˚F-78˚F range around the Valley. East/northeast winds will breezy (8-16mph range) in the morning hours especially across our eastern zones before easing back into the light category into the afternoon/evening. Heading into mid-week, plan on little change in the forecast with sunny skies and dry conditions. Daily highs will remain in the middle to upper 70s with overnight lows in the low 50s to upper 40s.
