Local Alert Weather Forecast, Sat., Aug 1, 2015
A fire weather warning is in effect until Saturday at 10:00 PM.
The triple digit heat across the high desert has helped spark a fire weather warning across the High Desert. Temperatures will continue to be hot as we move towards the weekend.
There is a touch of moisture moving across us right now, but these light showers shouldn’t last too long for today. There’s no reason to cancel any plans, unless the heat proves to be unbearable. Be sure to drink plenty of water and apply that sunscreen.
A high pressure dome has passed over us, and that is what dragged the hot air into our region from the south. A low pressure trough is going to take its place, and this trough will allow for moisture to be pooled in as well. There is a good chance for pop up showers and thunderstorms into the weekend.
Temperatures will begin slowly dropping on Saturday, with highs in the mid to upper 90s. Areas far north will still see some triple digit temperatures, but we are starting to go downhill.
Our seven day forecast shows plenty of rain in our future, but also a cool down on the way. Temperatures will eventually be reaching the low 80s by next Thursday and Friday. The heat wave will not last forever.
