Forecaster: Henz, D.
 
Synopsis:
It was rather hot this past weekend with back-to-back triple digit highs. While no major cool downs are in the forecast this week, we should experience a modest cooling trend as the work week progresses. Looking at the big picture, general troughing will supplant our lingering ridge from last week. Multiple weak disturbances will rotate through the trough and across the Great Basin during the period bringing breezy conditions and subtle cooling as highlighted above. Overall, dry conditions and plenty of sun will remain the norm as we try and work our way back into the 90s during the second half of the week.

For today plan on clear and sunny skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will warm into the 101˚F-104˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will hover in the 5-10mph range with localized afternoon/evening gusts around 15mph. Overnight lows will dip into the mid to low 70s around the urban corridor under clear skies.

For tomorrow plan on a near repeat of today with sunny skies and daytime highs reaching the 100˚F-102˚F range around the Valley. Variable winds will again hover in the 5-10mph range with localized gusts around 15mph. We’ll see little change in the forecast heading into the midweek and beyond with afternoon highs settling into the upper 90s across the lower deserts under mainly clear skies. Windier conditions and perhaps the mildest temperatures of the week are forecast to arrive by Friday courtesy of a passing disturbance. We’ll have more details on this as the week progresses and ensembles come into better agreement.
