Synopsis: Hot and quiet weather conditions are on tap for the upcoming weekend. High pressure will remain in place across the Desert Southwest promoting dry conditions, off-and-on passing high clouds, and some increased breezes (late weekend). Highs will continue to reach into the low 90s preceded by crisp morning lows in the 60s. Moving ahead to next week, guidance is coming into better agreement on milder temperatures with highs dipping back into the 80s.
For today plan clear and sunny skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will warm into the 92˚F-94˚F range around the Valley. West/southwest winds will hover in the 3-8mph range with localized afternoon/evening gusts in the 10-15mph range. Overnight lows will dip into the mid to low 60s around the urban corridor under mostly clear skies.
There will be little change in the forecast for tomorrow with daytime temperatures again climbing into the 92˚F-94˚F range around the Valley under mostly sunny skies. Variable winds will again remain in the light category with some localized gusts around 10-15mph during the second half of the day. Heading into Sunday, we expect an uptick in passing high clouds leading to periods of overcast skies. Highs will see a small step back into the upper 80s to low 90s. Additional cooling and increased breezes are in store for early next week though we’re still not seeing any rain chances in the extended period.
