Temperatures this afternoon were very similar to what we experienced Tuesday throughout the region. The normal for Palm Springs today should be around 67°. The high's across the region remained in the lower 70's.
This trend will carry on through the rest of the workweek. A ridge of high pressure will continue to build through Friday. Keeping temperatures warmest Thursday and Friday.
A shortwave trough moves southeast Saturday, bringing back onshore flow and elevating moisture slightly. There is a slight chance for some rain to the west that we will keep an eye on. For now, limiting those chances to coastal mountain slopes. The desert will see breezy winds for wind prone areas and through the mountains as this short wave passes through Saturday.
Temperatures will remain mild through the rest of the week. Seasonal normals back in the 60's will return by next week.
Tonight, skies will be partly cloudy leaving some chances to see the December Full Moon. The name of this full moon is known as the Cold Moon or Long Nights Moon. The peak of the full moon will be at 9:12 p.m. and it is the last full moon of the decade! The name comes from the time where people used the full moon to track the calendar. This name coming from long and cold winter nights.
