This week is gonna suck

Normally, May is kind a unique month in the Coachella Valley in that the temperature outside is warm, but not unreasonable, and the snow birds have cleared out a bit – giving locals a chance to enjoy themselves a bit before those dreaded, scorching hot June, July, and August days are here. Not this year.

And good luck trying to escape the heat as it’s everywhere – with even Idyllwild breaking a record on Sunday.

Yeah, yeah.  I know.  82 sounds great compared to 110 – but, it’s still pretty hot for the mountain city.

High temps are slated to be 10 to 15 degrees above normal this week and looking at the 10-day forecast, there may some relief in sight as Saturday is salted to have a high of only 94 degrees.
