Riverside County will see a break in the rain this weekend as a high pressure system brings warm, dry weather to the region before another chance for precipitation is expected to arrive Tuesday night and Wednesday, forecasters said.

The clear skies Saturday were expected to help start a warming process that will continue through Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

Saturday’s highs temperature in the valleys were expected to be between 57-62 with low temperatures between 36-44.

The mountains were expected to see highs of 44-53 and lows of 27-37, while highs in the Coachella Valley will range between 61-66 and lows between 40-48, the NWS said.

Probabilities were high for scattered showers and mountain snow Tuesday night through Wednesday, forecasters said.

“Wednesday will be a cold day with highs in the 50s in the coastal and valley zones and the high deserts, the 30s and 40s in the mountains, and the 60s in the lower deserts,” the weather service said.

Thursday and Friday were expected to be dry as an upper ridge amplifies over the eastern Pacific for northerly flow down the West Coast.
