Hot temperatures will remain in Riverside County Tuesday as a return of monsoonal moisture brings a chance of thunderstorms to the mountains, according to the National Weather Service.

The Riverside County mountains will have a slight chance of thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon due to monsoonal moisture making its way into the region from the southeast, NWS meteorologist Adam Roser said.

The chance of measurable precipitation has been set at 20 percent Tuesday in the mountains.

Temperatures are expected to remain around the same Tuesday, but the monsoonal moisture could make the heat feel even hotter than what the thermometer reflects.

High temperatures are expected to reach 97 degrees in Riverside, 107 in Palm Springs, 97 in the San Gorgonio Pass near Banning and 91 in Temecula.

Cooling centers are open daily across the county, providing residents who do not live in climate-controlled environments a free, cool space to relax until the evening hours.

Temperatures will drop slightly throughout the region on Wednesday, then heat back up heading into the weekend, forecasters said.
