Frankly Speaking for Wednesday May 22, 2013

We've been above average for much of the last few weeks, so when there's an opportunity to see our afternoon readings fall closer to the average mark, many of us who aren't ready for the extreme heat just yet can breathe a big sigh of relief.  One of the reasons we're seeing our temperatures coming back down to normal is a Pacific low pressure system centered over Seattle.  As this strengthens, it will amplify and affect our area by reducing our temperatures and increasing our winds.  Imperial Valley will see the highest winds today with gusts up to 35 mph.  Yuma will see gusts up to 25 and Blythe will split the difference at around 30 mph.  Clouds will be hard to find and we'll see our temperatures round out around 100 once again. Even with the winds up, the air quality will be better for most of the area as the fire is 50% contained and the wind will generally be from the SW/W directions. For my videocast, visit 

Have a great day at I hope to see you on the air @ 4 during FirstNews
