It was a sunny and warm day across the desert otherwise with high temperatures in the mid 80’s, 5° above normal. Slightly warmer temperatures await tomorrow.

A hot, dry Friday with highs in the upper 80s to close out the work week. The weekend before spring will bring big changes including clouds and wind.

A trough will move into California on Saturday, bringing a variety of changes. First, we will see an increase in cloud cover starting in the morning. Light showers will move over the Southland late Saturday evening through Sunday. Any showers that enter the desert will be very light.

The wind, as usual, will be our biggest impact. We can expect gusts in excess of 30 MPH around the valley floor. The disturbing wind will follow us until Sunday.
