We have a brief cool down starting Friday as a weak Pacific storm moves through the region. We will still be in the 80's Friday afternoon, but cooling will begin in the evening hours. Clouds will start rolling in with a slight chance of showers Friday night.

Saturday showers are likely in the morning and afternoon. With the showers there is a slight chance of a thunderstorm. We could see between a tenth to a quarter inch of rainfall, or more if there is a thunderstorm. The best part, temperatures will only reach the low 70's.

Sunday things clear up with sunny skies and highs climbing near 80 again. Beginning of next week looks like we are going back to warmer than normal weather, highs in the mid-upper 80's.

How hot have we been this week?
  • Monday: 84.7°F
  • Tuesday: 89.2°F
  • Wednesday: 91.9°F
  • Thursday: 89.2°F

Long range forecasts still point to a 40-50% chance of above normal temperatures for the next month, but near normal precipitation. Perhaps we'll get breaks from the heat waves with more storms as the month progresses.
