(Victor Valley) – It is July and it is going to feel like it in the High Desert. High pressure will bring hot and dry conditions to our area this week, with gusty winds each afternoon and early evening.
Highs in the Victor Valley will be over 100 degrees for most of the week, reaching 104 by Wednesday. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s.
Another concern is the increased fire danger. The combination of dry conditions, gusty wind, and very low humidity will create critical fire weather conditions along the slopes of the mountains and adjacent desert areas through Tuesday.
The National Weather Service in San Diego is forecasting a bit of a change starting Wednesday. Subtropical moisture will spread into the region through Friday bringing a slight chance of afternoon and early evening thunderstorms to the mountains and deserts.
Looking ahead to the weekend expect drier and cooler conditions to develop.
