BROWNSVILLE (NEWS CENTER 23) — We have been having some pretty warm temperatures in the Valley, and it's not going to change anytime soon.
As the weather pattern remains fairly stagnant, tonight's weather conditions will be much like last night.
Temperatures will only cool into the mid to upper 70s across the Upper Valley, while those areas right along the coast will drop down to around 80.
Southeasterly winds will decrease through the evening hours and will average 10 mph tonight.
Mostly clear skies will prevail through the overnight hours, with a few more clouds developing around daybreak.
So why have we been so darn hot lately? It's all thanks to that high pressure system settling over our area!
Picture it as the king of weather. usually during monsoon, the moisture is the king of weather, but that has been momentarily been overthrown.
For the next couple of days we will see this strong ridge of high pressure putting a lid over our area and concealing us from the rain and magnifying the heat.
This will be your type of weather pattern for most of the workweek.
Our rain chances won't return to the Valley until the weekend, when a low pressure system moves in overthrowing the high pressure system and returning our "cooler" temps to the region.
And when I say "cooler" I really mean, "cooler".
We have been expierencing those upper 90's, and by the end of the workweek into the weekend, expect to see those lower 90's, closer to the 89° mark.
