Patio misters and fans were in use for many outdoor Cinco de Mayo dinner plans but today's temperatures weren't too extreme. For perspective, an average high for Palm Springs on today's date is 91°.
Above normal temperatures remain the name of the game this week with a ridge of high pressure in place over the west coast. A trough of low pressure will be moving inland Friday and bringing changes to our desert's weather.
As the trough moves into the west coast, temperatures will cool subtly and onshore flow will strengthen. Thursday's gusts will reach 30 MPH but the current outlook for wind gusts on Friday is near 40 MPH. Breezy conditions remain for Saturday but weaker than Friday with an overall comfortable outlook for Mother's Day weekend.
