Summer heat continues to dominate in the forecast... at least, for a couple more days. As we enjoy these final days of the spring season, we're in for a spring-like cool-down, just in time for the kick-off of summer!
Expect mainly clear skies again tonight, and another night featuring a bright moon - which was full early this morning. Lows for the valley will range from 57-62 degrees. Tomorrow is much like today; valley highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s again under bright sunshine. There's only a slight chance of isolated storms for the Central Mountains tomorrow afternoon/evening.
The downward slide in temps begins on Wednesday, with highs closer to normal for this time of year; in the low 80s. With the temperature changes coming into play, we'll have some windy conditions through the middle of the week.
Thursday is the coolest day of the week. It's likely that most locations don't even hit 70° on Thursday - which is quite a difference from the warmth we've experienced as of late. Friday is the summer solstice, and highs will be 10-15 degrees below normal; right around 70° for valley locations.
Any showers/storms that pop up with these weather changes, look to favor the higher elevations. Mountain areas should watch for possible storms Friday afternoon and into the weekend.
