Get ready for the warmest day of the week.

We continue our warming trend this week as a high-pressure system continue to pull in warmer air from the desert southwest into our state. We see temperatures in the upper 70s for Tuesday and lots of sunshine.

1) Sunny

2) Upper 70s

3) Slight cooldown on Wednesday but still warm
