The cooler temperatures in the Valley and mountain areas are expected to continue throughout the week, the National Weather Service said.
Meteorologist Jim Bagnall with the National Weather Service in Hanford said a low pressure system spinning in the area is helping keep the temperatures low and is generating a slight chance of showers for the Valley on Tuesday, while showers are expected “each day” in the mountains.
The weak storm is bringing light showers without much moisture in the mountain areas between Yosemite and Tulare County, Bagnall said. A 20 percent chance of isolated showers is possible for the Valley on Tuesday afternoon.
Sunday’s high in Fresno was 75. That’s 11 degrees lower than normal for this time of year, the weather service says. Daytime highs will stay around the mid-70s through Wednesday before bumping up toward 80 on Thursday and Friday.
The cooler than average temperatures will give the Valley a dry, mild week ahead, Bagnall said.
