It will be unseasonably warm today with near record high temperatures across much of the area. Highs will be in the 70s in most valley locations.
Strong southerly flow tonight will continue to pump plenty of warm air into the area. Temperatures are expected to bottom out about 30 degrees above late February normals. This could end up setting records for highest low temperatures at all three major airports tomorrow morning.
Each observation point is apart of our COOP program (Cooperative Observer Program). Each site has a 24 hour observation period that ends and begins at 8 am local time.
