Temperatures continue to warm today as a cold front approaches from the northwest. The front passes through tomorrow morning before sunrise allowing afternoon highs today to graduate into the middle 70's and middle 80's. Winds will be the primary weather concern today with SSW at 15-30mph and gusts as high as 35-50mph. Blowing dust and elevated pollen levels will also be of concern. Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will likely to develop shortly after lunchtime. Temperatures will be cooling off significantly by tomorrow afternoon. Wednesday and Thursday return to below and near-average for temperatures.
A strong pacific trough will drop into the region this weekend which will produce showers and thunderstorms Saturday carrying over into Sunday. Temperatures will be cooling off into the 50's and 60's by next Sunday. Saturday still looks like the rainiest day of the weekend. Cooler weather will stay with us into early next week.
