We're in the middle of our 4th heat wave of the season, but how long will this one hang on? Details in today's blog.

Some morning showers have left the Valley overcast Wednesday morning and could put a brief end to the 90 degree heat. Areas in the northern Valley, who have seen little, if any rainfall this morning will likely get to the 90 degree high and will be more at risk for storms this afternoon.

After the showers move east, the Valley will likely get a break in the cloud cover, bringing temperatures up to the upper 80's and low 90's (especially in areas without rain Wednesday morning). A weak cold front moves through tonight but won't bring any relief from the hot air. We'll feel relatively dry for Thursday although westerly winds continue to heat us up with highs forecast in the low 90's.

Our Bermuda high pressure takes over for Friday and Saturday, bringing temperatures back to the upper 90's. A slight chances of storms are possible Friday and Saturday afternoon, but the majority of us will remain dry. A strong cold front is set to move through the area Sunday, bringing another round of storms to the Valley. However, behind the front comes much drier and relatively cool air. We'll start out our last full week of July around seasonal levels.
