Synopsis: We’ve got a final round of 80s on tap this afternoon before changes arrive overnight from our next weather disturbance. This system and an attendant cold front will bring increased breezes and a few showers/storms overnight into Thursday morning. Rain chances will remain minimal for the lower deserts with better chances across the higher terrain north and east of the Valley. Cooler temperatures (70s) will arrive tomorrow lasting into the weekend.
For today plan on periods of overcast skies and mid-level clouds into this evening. Afternoon temperatures will still warm into the 81˚F-83˚F range around the Valley. Breezy southwest winds will develop this afternoon/evening into the 7-15mph range with gusts around 25mph possible. Overnight lows will dip into the mid 50s around the urban corridor with a few light showers possible.
For tomorrow plan on a return to sunnier conditions after the morning hours. Daytime highs behind the cold front will step back into the 69˚F-72˚F range around the Valley. Breezy southwest winds will continue with gusts around 15-20mph before easing into the evening hours. Milder weather with dry conditions will be the main story on Friday and into the start of the weekend. Plan on highs in the low to mid 70s and plenty of sun. More on this in tomorrow’s extended Outlook.
