A heat wave officially begins today for much of the region. Clear skies and quiet weather will bring temperatures well into the 90’s later today across West Side Valleys and the triple digits by tomorrow! In fact, much of the week we will stay in the 90’s.
Tuesday the heat is peaking and computer models are hinting at a little bit of shower and thunderstorm activity late in the day. This threat looks to be for all inland locations though, including the Valley. It also appears that showers and storms could persist overnight Tuesday/Wednesday.
Another hot day is in store for the middle of the week. Isolated storms will pop up again by late afternoon and early evening, but at this point it looks to be along and east of the Cascades and over Northern California. It does look to be isolated though but we we still be watching it closely. The fire danger level is still at high for Jackson & Josephine Counties. The industrial fire precaution level is at a level 1.
The weather is looking fantastic for the holiday weekend. It will be dry and sunny but still hot. We’ll be in the 90’s all the way into the weekend for the West Side.
