The figure above indicates the forecasted high in orange (with error bar denoting the range of ensemble forecast members), average high for this time of year in orange (dashed line), forecasted low in blue (with error bar), average low this time of year in blue (dashed line), and forecasted wind speed in purple. Note that the wind speed forecast is sustained wind (not gusts), and it is based on only one model (not an ensemble).
Near record warmth expected this week with highs in the lower 70s the next few days and lows in the mid-upper 30s. Temperatures will cool and breezes will gradually become stronger later in the week as the high pressure ridge breaks down. A trough moving through the Southwest early next week will bring windy conditions and even a chance for light rain showers.
Additional storm systems could affect the region next week…so stay tuned!
