Fresno got it's first taste of summer on Tuesday and it's going to stick around for a few more days, the National Weather Service said.
Although Fresno's high of 91 fell short of the record for the date -- the city recorded 95 degrees in 1989 -- it still was the first day this year in the 90s, the weather service said. That is about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year, meteorologist Gary Sanger said.
The forecast calls for two more days of unseasonably high temperatures, with Fresno's daytime high expected to hit 91 degrees again Wednesday and Thursday before a slight cooling trend arrives toward the end of the week.
Sanger said overnight temperatures Wednesday night will dip to a low of 57 degrees and 60 degrees by Thursday night.
Daytime temperatures will cool by Friday, with an expected high of 86 degrees. Weekend temperatures will be in the mid to low 80s, Sanger said.
There is no rain in the forecast for the next week, he said. Only 4.15 inches has been recorded in Fresno since last July. The city normally by now records 10.23 inches.
