A sun-filled day in the desert with high temperatures in the low 80s across the Coachella Valley. Both Palm Springs and Thermal peaked at 82°. Skies will remain clear through the evening with a light northwest wind.
A ridge of high pressure is building over Southern California and will continue through midweek. This will aid in a warming trend with highs nearing 90° by Friday.
Even with the warmer temperatures, it's not anything excessive. The average high by the end of the week is 89° -- close to the high temperatures we'll be feeling at that time.
Our next cooldown will begin this weekend. A trough of low pressure will not only bring cooler temperatures to the Southland but also the chance for rain Sunday night into Monday.
