A high-wind watch goes into effect Thursday at noon as a strong wind storm moves across the valley. Winds will be between 25 and 35 mph.

“There’s potential for 60 mph winds, most likely on the west side,” Harrison said.

Thursday’s high is forecast for 81 degrees, which is about 8 degrees above normal.

Friday will be cooler as the high temperature drops 10 degrees from Thursday making the anticipated high 71 degrees, Harrison said. Breezy 15 to 25 mph winds are expected with gusts up to 35.
