Kicking off the new week with warmer temperatures and dry conditions


Tonight we’ll hold on to the 50’s a bit farther into the nighttime hours as we settle in the upper 40s. A far cry from the 30’s some of us found ourselves in at the start of the weekend. We’ll remain dry as high pressure remains in control. A light breeze will keep fog to a minimum with only the sheltered valleys and rivers basins seeing some.

Monday, a few fair-weather clouds but otherwise mostly sunny skies continue. A chilly start is expected as you head out the door to work or school with temps in the 40s, but everyone should be able to warm up into the low 70s through the day as southwest winds continue to help us out.

Tuesday, another weak cold front is going to lazily push its way through the area. It won’t affect our temperatures very much but it will bring more clouds with an isolated shower in the morning and early afternoon. Most of us will still be able to reach the low 70s despite more clouds.

Wednesday drier air returns again. We’ll get rid of any cloud cover fairly quickly and should be back to mostly sunny skies by the time the afternoon rolls around. Highs in the 70s.

Thursday brings in cooler northwest winds which hurt our warming trend a bit. Lows still manage to reach the upper 60s to the east and low 70s towards the west. We’ll stay dry with lots of sunshine.

A few more clouds are in store for our Friday but we’ll remain dry. With cooler northern winds, we’ll still struggle to hit the 70s for more of our area. Upper 60s across the board expected as we settle back into a fall-like pattern for the weekend.

Kicking off the weekend on Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. Still stuck in the upper 60s with north winds still blowing in. We’ll remain dry all day long.

In the extended forecast, rain chances are growing slowly as another unsettled pattern is trying to form. We’ll have to keep an eye on it, but for now, the signal is growing for more rain and cooler weather too! Gardeners should begin to finish up whatever they have in their gardens as those first freezes of the year are likely to come up as we head closer to October. Also, Fall burn season begins October 1st, so be mindful of fire conditions and follow the rules as well as any advisories issued for your region.

As we transition into fall, our weather becomes a bit messy with big temperature swings and some active weather. Make sure you and your family have a plan in place for what to do when severe weather strikes. One of the most important parts of that plan is having multiple ways to receive weather alerts and warnings. Two great ways to get them are having the StormTracker 59 app downloaded and purchasing an NOAA Weather Radio for your home and on the go.
