The National Weather Service is predicting a 50% chance of thunderstorms in Pasadena starting very early Wednesday morning through Wednesday evening. The day’s high is expected to top out at 92.
On its Twitter page, the weather service also warned of an elevated fire danger “through the coming week due to hot conditions with low humidity.”
The agency noted “a risk of dry lightning” and cautioned that “any new fire start will grow quickly!”
The forecast called for partly cloudy conditions. The monsoonal moisture is flowing into Southern California from Santa Barbara County, according to the NWS.
Every day this week is predicted to be in the 90’s.
Meanwhile, a drier southwest flow will develop on Thursday, with a slight chance of more thunderstorms in the afternoon, mainly over the mountains, followed by drier and warming conditions Friday and Saturday.
