You might have run into some fog this morning, which is cooler and wetter than Wednesday, starting out at 69 degrees and 99 percent humidity.

It will become sunny today with a high of 94 and south southwest breezes at 5-10 mph this afternoon. The low overnight will be 71.

Friday will be mostly sunny and hot again, near 93. The low will be 71.

We now have a 20 percent chance of showers between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, then a chance of showers and storms in the afternoon. It will be mostly sunny again, with a high near 90. Saturday night, the chance of showers and storms will be 30 percent, with a low of 70.

Sunday, it’s back to mostly sunny and hot, with a high of 91.

Monday we start the 30 percent chance of rain pattern and it lasts at least through Wednesday.

Monday’s high will be 92. Any storms are more likely after 5 p.m. The low will be 71, with the continued 30 percent chance of showers and storms.

Tuesday’s 30 percent chance of showers comes with partly sunny skies and a high of 93; same chance of rain Tuesday night, with a low of 70.

Wednesday has a 30 percent chance of storms and rain, and it will be partly sunny again with a high of 91.

There’s no end in sight to the 90+ degree days, but it is July, marginally hotter than August. And there’s no end in sight to the growing drought in the area.
