Some moisture lingers as we enter a mild September week

Some more light showers were moving into the Coachella Valley around 7:45. Trace amounts of rain were observed at the Palm Springs airport at 7:53PM.

Looking ahead to the overnight hours, some more stray showers in and around the valley are possible. Drier air will make its way into the valley throughout the day tomorrow and will limit the chances for even stray showers more and more with time.

Moisture levels today remain on the higher side. Dew points throughout the valley are in the upper 50s and lower 60s. This is some of the leftover tropical moisture form Hurricane Jova that was drawn into the Coachella Valley over the weekend. The excess moisture is why skies today are quite overcast and why we have seen some sporadic showers across the area. We will see a noticeable drying trend over the next few days. Although, some clouds are possible tomorrow.

Temperatures today remain below average. This is partly thanks to the extra moisture hanging around in our atmosphere. Temperatures this entire week will remain mild and below average thanks to a trough which will be developing and moving over the west coast throughout the week.

As previously mentioned, temperatures this week will be very nice. Thanks to a changing upper-atmospheric pattern, dryer and slightly cooler air will make its way down the west coast and into Southern California this week. This will leave us with temperatures below average, sitting around 100° most days this week.
