Things are warming up this week across the west, especially the southwest. Temperatures are set to be well above average for the second half of the week and into the weekend. Contrast that with below average temperatures for the east.
What is causing this warm up? Well, high pressure builds across the southwest this week. This system will pump in dry, warm air that is forced to sink from the pressure. As it sinks, it warms even more.
Temperatures will be around 10 to 20 degrees above average with some records potentially broken Wednesday and Thursday.
It’s not just one day. There is a chance for record breaking highs on multiple days later this week.
Not a fan for the heat? Well, once the high pressure breaks down and moves off east, temperatures begin to return to more average and seasonal.
