Weather First Forecast

High pressure is dominating the weather in the Desert Southwest and will continue to do so for the next several days.  A Rex Block has locked our current weather pattern in place with high pressure to the north of a low pressure area slowly retrograding from Texas back westward to the eastern Pacific off the coast of Mexico.  The blocking pattern will have massive implications on our weather in that temperatures will stay 5°-10° above average through the weekend and for the majority of next week.  We’ll see a few influxes of high clouds but that’ll be about it for the beginning of next week.  Temperatures will likely flirt with record highs and we’ll likely break some records overnight by way of record warm low temperatures.  No rain is forecast to come to the valley until Friday of next week as the models keep pushing our rain chances back with the persistence of this stationary high.  Shower chances don’t look great on Friday and the fact that both the American and European models keep shoving our chances farther out in the forecast period doesn’t bode well for any rain, but an increase in intensity of the trough could tap into some more subtropical moisture and bring it to the area.  And that in itself is worth watching closely, especially with the ample forcing and energy associated with the incoming low.
