The good news is that this warm weather is here to stay until the end of the week.

After some clouds on Friday, we'll see a return to warmer weather Sunday. It's the first big heat that the Coachella Valley will have seen in a while. That area is expected to be in the 90s for the first time this year, according to the National Weather Service office in San Diego.
