We topped out at 70 degrees this afternoon but most locations on the valley floor only crept into the upper 60s.

Another cooler-than-average day arrives on Tuesday, but we'll see lots of sunshine.

Those strong NW winds continue in the mountains and deserts where gusts have been as high as 50 to 60 mph.

Those winds will persist tonight and into tomorrow morning but will subside late Tuesday.

Rapid warming will start Wednesday and by the weekend some sports could reach 90 degrees.
