Palmdale and Lancaster made it into the 90s for the first time this year, so if you were outside, you know it was pretty warm. Today brings cooler and windy conditions thanks to a cold front. Highs will be about 10 degrees cooler in the upper 70s to low 80s, and gusts out of the northwest between 30-40 mph are expected. This may cause blowing dust/dirt at times, which can impact visibility.
Our cooling trend continues through Tuesday, then we're close to average Wednesday and Thursday in the mid 70s. It looks like another weak cold front arrives Friday, dropping temps by a few degrees.
You'll notice a few passing clouds over the next few days, but we're not forecasting any rainfall for the AV since most of the energy will stay to the north, keeping rain and snow across northern California.
TODAY: Sunny, cooler and windy. Highs 73-82. Winds WNW at 15-25, gusts up to 35+ mph.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear and breezy. Lows 47-53. Winds W at 15-25+ mph.
MONDAY: Mostly sunny, cooler and windy. Highs 64-75. Winds WNW at 15-25, gusts up to 35+ mph.
