Warming Up This Week And Chance Of Thunderstorms Returns

By Nikki Garrett Metzger

(Victor Valley) – Get ready for a warm up this week.  High pressure will bring warmer temps and more humid conditions to our area by midweek.

High pressure over the Rockies will expand slowly westward through Tuesday. We’ll also see an influx of monsoonal moisture, coupled with instability in the atmosphere, which should fire off some afternoon and early evening thunderstorms in the mountains and high desert.  Although we are not expected to see the strong storms like we saw a couple of weeks ago.

For today we’ll see high temps in the mid 90s, with breezy conditions.  Winds could gust to 20 mph this afternoon and evening.  The overnight low should drop into the mid 60s.

Tomorrow the warm up begins.  Daytime highs for the next few days should top out around 100 degrees.  Overnight lows will be in the low 70s.

By Friday the high pressure retreats and a trough of low pressure will move in from the coast over the weekend. This will bring cooler temperatures and drier conditions – no more monsoonal moisture or thunderstorms for the weekend.  Highs will be in the mid 90s once again, with overnight lows in the 60s.
