PM Update: Warm and dry to close out work week

While the weather the last couple of days hasn’t exactly been refreshing, it hasn’t been oppressively hot either. It’s been about as average as it gets. Same deal on Friday before heat, humidity and storm chances return to our daily forecasts.

Through Tonight: Decent probably best describes it. Temperatures gradually fall back through the 80s this evening with partly cloudy skies and low-to-moderate humidity. Low temperatures by dawn reach the low-to-mid 60s in the cooler suburbs to the low 70s downtown.

Friday: Pretty much a repeat of today and yesterday. I think we’ll end up a few degrees shy of 90 degrees with partly sunny skies and moderate humidity levels. Winds are light.

Pollen: All pollen types and mold are in the LOW range.

Southwest heat: On Wednesday, Death Valley soared to 128 degrees, the hottest temperature this year in the U.S. Not only that, Wunderground’s Jeff Masters noted that reading was the10th hottest temperature ever recorded in the U.S. This morning, Death Valley only dropped to 107 degrees, its second highest low temperature on record (hat tip: Wasatch Weather Weenies).
