Warmer than normal continues through most of the week
Yesterday Palm Springs recorded a high temperature of 94°. This tied the record for Palm Springs back in 1956 putting into perspective how warm above normal we are this time of year. Temperatures should be around 80°.
Some of us may have woken up to a bit of a jolt last night with a 3.5 magnitude earthquake 6 km east of Cabazon. The depth of the earthquake was 15.1 km. The time was around 1:45 a.m. Sunday.
Conditions will stay on the warm side today, remaining above seasonal average. There will be a slight cooling with an area of low pressure to the south. This will produce a weak onshore flow, allowing our temperatures to drop a few degrees compared to yesterday. High pressure will still continue to dominate the weather pattern through the week.
Along the San Diego coastline there is some morning low clouds and fog leading to a Dense Fog Advisory through 9 a.m. The Coachella Valley will see clear skies through the day.
High temperatures this afternoon will drop a few degrees compared to yesterday but are still expected to remain above our averages this time of year
