Although Riverside County has been experiencing a slight reprieve from the intense heat, forecasters expect a wave of high temperatures to move in over the next few days.
“We have a cool trough of low pressure that will be moving out of our area and replaced by a very warm to hot dome of high pressure,” WeatherCurrents.com forecaster Jim Purpura said. ”The result will be a warming trend over the weekend.”
He added that the remnants of Hurricane Miriam will mean an increase in mid and high clouds, as well as humidity, beginning Saturday and on into Sunday.
“The early part of next week looks to be a bit dryer, but still on the hot side,” Purpura advised.
Daytime temps are expected to be hovering in the upper 90′s with the thermostat expected to reach 101 on Tuesday Oct. 2.
