Highs Thursday topped out in the low to mid 80s for much of the region under a sunny sky as westerly winds downsloping off of the mountains helped the warming process along.
Today, we will see a sunny sky all day long with highs in the upper 70s for most. Sunshine will continue tomorrow and Sunday with highs in the low to mid 80s.
Next work week will begin in warm fashion with highs in the mid 80s Monday, but as the week unfolds, we should see highs backing down a bit into the 70s.
As far as rain goes, not much to talk about. I will mention a chance of showers Thursday, but outside of that, dry conditions prevail.
Otto is bordering on hurricane strength, but it will race northeastward through the Atlantic Ocean, away from the U.S.
I continue to put a lot of leg work on a daily basis into my Winter forecast. This Winter's forecast is a challenge with some conflicting signals. I have several analog years I like and am using, but the weather results were different in some of those cases. Hopefully, I will have that ready within the next couple of weeks.
