We won’t see much change for the coming week. In fact, we have an even hotter trend. We are now in the hottest time of the year, where our average afternoon temperature is 99 degrees. We will be around that number for the whole week.
As the heat continues we have no signs of significant rain to cool off, but will bring back small chances of rain by next weekend. Right now we’re only looking at a 20% chance of rain or less, so we don’t expect much or no measurable rain for at least the next seven days.
