The long and stifling heat wave is finally creeping out of the Inland Empire making room for cooler temps and a slight chance of rain much to the delight of local people.
“I seriously have had enough of that heat,” Murrieta resident Haley Matthews said. “It’ll be nice to have the house cool and to not cringe when I step outside.”
Weather Currents meteorologist Jim Purpura explained the cooling trend will continue as a low pressure system eases into the area.
“Expect continued slow cooling of temperatures to near normal through Friday night, then below normal for the weekend into next week,” Purpura said.
Patchy fog and low clouds are predicted to return each night and morning.
“There will be a chance of rain, Monday through Wednesday,” he added.
Here is how the weekend forecast looks:
- Friday: Morning low clouds and fog, becoming mostly sunny. Warm. South to southwest wind to 10 mph, high of about 82°F.
- Friday night:Mostly clear early, then low clouds and fog developing, low near 57°F.
- Saturday: Morning low clouds and fog, becoming mostly sunny. Warm, high around 81°F.
- Saturday night: Mostly clear early, then low clouds and fog developing, low of about 56°F.
