Palm Springs hit a high temperature Saturday of 71°. This is above the normal of 67°.
The ridge of high pressure that has kept temperatures warmer than normal is moving east. A trough low low pressure is moving north but not enough for us to feel the cooling effects. This will just allow for our temperatures to stay in the lower 70's.
Overnight tonight, areas of gusty winds will move in. A High Wind Warning is going to go into effect at 6 p.m. tonight through 12 p.m. Tuesday. The areas of gusty winds will remain for below the passes, canyons, and mountains. This offshow flow of northeast to east winds will keep temperatures above normal for the next several days. For areas of the warning, winds will be consistent at 20-30 mph with gusts reaching to 60 mph. Some areas of isolated gusts could reach to 70 mph. Winds are expected to peak by mid-morning to mid-afternoon Monday.
Two more short wave troughs will move into the region Wednesday and Thursday and temperatures will begin to cool back down into the 60's.
Until then, temperatures will stay warmer than normal.
