Daily Weather Briefing for Sunday, September 29, 2019






Outlook

Summerlike conditions are expected again today, with near-record highs and thunderstorm chances mainly over the mountains. A backdoor front will push in early Monday, increasing shower and thunderstorm chances for the early part of the week, though temperatures will remain quite warm. Relief from the heat is not really expected until next weekend.
