Monsoon season is here! Increasing moisture from the southeast will mean more high cloudiness and an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoons and early evenings and mainly over the mountains and deserts. The best chances of strong thunderstorms with locally heavy rain is Tuesday through Thursday. I see our best chance for measurable Coachella Valley rain on Wednesday. Increased humidity will put dew points in the upper 50s / lower 60s and keep us from cooling very much overnight. Dryer and hotter weather returns next weekend.
