Despite mostly cloudy skies, the warmth remains in place.

Highs peak in the low 80s this afternoon. There is a slight chance of a few showers in the White Mountains, while dry conditions prevail for the valley floors. Expect some clearing overnight as lows bottom out in the low 50s.

More sunshine is on tap for the weekend and next week, courtesy of high pressure redeveloping off the Pacific coast. Sunday’s forecast high of 83° would break the old record of 82° set in 1999. Highs much of next week top out in the low to mid 80s, running roughly 15° above average for late February.
