Imperial County Weather Synopsis
Hot and dry weather continues through Friday with gusty northeast winds for wind prone areas in the coastal foothills and inland valleys. Onshore flow brings a cooling trend this weekend especially on Sunday. Even cooler, with increasing clouds and a chance of precipitation Sunday afternoon through Monday, due to a surgeof subtropical moisture ahead of a large upper trough moving onto the West Coast. Dry and a little warmer for Tuesday and Wednesday as a weak high pressure ridge builds over the Southwest.

A small patch of stratus just off the coast from Orange County early this morning, otherwise skies continue to be clear around the region, with a solid offshore flow with pressure gradients around 13 mb from the Great Basin to the SoCal coast.

Strong offshore pattern will continue today and temperatures will likely be the hottest today west of the mountains. Temperatures will reach the 90s just away from the immediate coast and into the
mid 90s to around 100 in the valleys and inland Orange County. As funny as it may sound, relief from the heat today could be found in the desert where temps will only be in the lower 80s in the high desert such as Victorville and Apple Valley. Even the Coachella Valley will be relatively moderate in the lower to mid 90s. Gusty winds will continue to be a concern today with a wind advisory remaining in effect west of the mountains, especially in the favorable offshore areas through and below the canyons and foothills.

Dry weather with mostly clear skies will continue across the Desert Southwest the rest of the week and into the weekend. Temperatures will continue to be unseasonably warm, and breezy weather at times will last into Friday. By Sunday afternoon, a large Pacific low pressure system will move into the western states. This will draw a considerable amount of subtropical moisture into the region from the southwest direction, with a slight chance of showers Sunday afternoon persisting through Tuesday, mainly over south central
