Temperatures this afternoon with soar into the 80s. A ridge of high pressure centers itself over Southern California making way for warmer than normal conditions.
Temperatures in the 80s will carry on into Sunday, even though a trough of low pressure from the north will begin to dip into the region for the afternoon. This will cool temperatures by a few degrees, though it will remain warm. There will be some light precipitation possible west of the mountains with this approaching low pressure and associated cold front by Sunday night. The desert and local mountains will see winds increase by Sunday afternoon. A High Wind Watch has been issued in anticipation of gusty westerly winds.
Winds will be westerly 25-35 mph with gusts reaching up to 65 mph. The gusty winds are expected to last through Monday afternoon. Be cautious as blowing sand and dust will be expected through this time period, especially for those of us waking up early on Monday morning.
As that area of low pressure and cold front moves through, temperatures will take a quick dive going into Monday. You don't need to put away those sweaters just yet!
