The extreme heat has finally pushed back east and we’re going to see temperatures continue to plummet this week as a thermal trough nudges into our area. Temperatures across the area today will be much more seasonable, and as we head into the rest of the week we’ll see temperatures go below normal for this time of the year. The thermal trough will start to push inland later today and will bring in a blast of cooler air that will last through the end of the week.
We’ll see mostly sunny skies across the region today with areas in the Basin and northern California still seeing smokey and hazy skies. The rain over the weekend washed some of the smoke out of the air and fewer areas in the Valleys will see smokey skies this week. There is a slight chance for thunderstorms in the mountains today, but besides that we are not expecting rain this week. Areas along the coast and a few places inland may see some patchy morning fog from the marine layer the next several days.
Thanks for logging on and enjoy the cooler week on tap! Remember to like me on Facebook!
