Welcome to Fall. Today is the first day of fall, but it will not feel like it.
Highs will be close to 90 degrees this afternoon. We will have mostly sunny skies. Tuesday will be partly cloudy with a high of 91. These temperatures will be more than 10 degrees above average but just below records.
We will be watching the record high temperatures very closely this week. We are forecasting tying and breaking some records this week. More heat will move in for this first week of fall. It will be feeling more like Summer than a Fall week.
Our threats to tie or break records will come Wednesday through Saturday. Temperatures will move into the mid-90s for much of the week. We will continue with partly cloudy skies through the period.
We desperately need rain. We don't see any good possibilities for showers this week.
We will be tracking the tropics to see if any system has the chance to increase our rain chance. Tropical Storm Karen is showing slim chances of that. Here's a look at the forecast track for our next tropical system.
