An upper high will move into the area today causing temperatures to bump up into triple digits in the Owens Valley. Temps should run above normal for most areas within our district through today and Saturday. By Saturday night that high will drift towards the desert SW, followed closely behind by a low off the SOCAL coast. This low will bring breezy conditions and slightly cooler temps on Sunday, along with a slight chance of renewed convection over the Crest. That low tracks NE into the Great Basin on Monday with temps returning to near seasonal norms and a continued threat of T-Storms over higher terrain.
