Riverside County is in for a welcome patch of milder weather over the next few days, with an upper trough expected to produce below-normal temperatures across Southern California through mid week, forecasters said Saturday.

On Saturday, temperatures ranged from the high 70s to the mid 90s. Coachella Valley was the hottest area in the county, expected to reach a high of 95 degrees, and Palm Springs followed with a high of 94 degrees.

Downtown Riverside and Hemet will both reach a high of 82 degrees while Temecula enjoys cooler weather at 77 degrees.

Warming will take place during the latter part of the week once the trough lifts out and away from the region, according to the National Weather Service. The warming looks to be only modest, forecasters added.

Palm Springs was expected to see highs in the mid-90s through Thursday, followed by low triple-digit temperatures Friday and next Saturday. Downtown Riverside will remain in the mid-80s until Friday and next Saturday, when highs of 94 are predicted for both days.
