Another record to fall today, but rain/cooler weather on the way

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  Hang in there!  We will finally get some rain Thursday, and then a big cool down for this weekend.  BUT... we have to get through another record breaker today.

Today will be sunny with a whopping high of 86.  That will shatter the record high of 83, and it will also break the record for the warmest high in November which is 84 degrees.

Tomorrow will not be as warm, but it will still be warm for the first of November.  We will be partly cloudy and reach 81 in the afternoon.

Thursday will get up to 80 degrees for the high.  A cold front will push through late Thursday bringing some much-needed rainfall to the area.  Widespread we will see about .25" of rain.  Locally, some folks could get up to .50".  That will help keep the dust down, and help a bit with the wildfires, but long term it won't help much.  We are currently about 17.5" below our average rainfall for the year.

Behind the front we will see a big cool down.  Friday we will only climb to a high of 69 degrees under sunny skies. 

The weekend will be cool and fall-like.  Lows Saturday and Sunday will be in the mid-40s, and highs both days will reach the low 70s.
