A warm up is underway, temperatures will climb while humidity rises. Monsoon moisture will increase the chance for thunderstorms, specially in our mountains.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for our mountains from noon on Tuesday until 8pm Wednesday. Heavy rain could lead to flash flooding. Thunderstorms could be capable of producing gusty winds. The chance is from the deserts to our valleys, but the best chance will be in our mountains.

The chance for storms subsides slightly on Thursday and Friday, but another surge of moisture on Saturday will increase the chance for heavy rain.

By midweek we'll see 90s return to the inland areas and hotter mountain neighborhoods with 80s along the coast. Patchy fog will increase near the coast on Friday.

Tuesday's Highs:
Coast: 73-78°
Inland: 82-87°
Mountains: 86-93°
Deserts: 102-107°
