Dry conditions and gusty winds will increase the danger of fire in Riverside County Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.
A trough of low pressure moving in from the north will bring cooler temperatures throughout the workweek, but will also bring gusty winds blowing to the west, NWS meteorologist Bruno Rodriguez said.
Humidity levels will drop to between 10-15% in the mountains and the Coachella Valley Tuesday, Rodriguez said. Wind gusts could reach 35 mph Tuesday in those two areas.
Conditions are expected to remain around the same through Thursday, but the winds will pick up in the afternoon on Wednesday and Thursday, Rodriguez said.
High temperatures Tuesday could reach 101 degrees in the Coachella Valley, 96 in the San Gorgonio Pass near Banning, 87 in Riverside, 67 in Idyllwild, 82 in Temecula and 87 in Hemet.
Temperatures will continue dropping a few degrees each day through Thursday, when highs in the Riverside metropolitan area will be in the low 80s, forecasters said.
