Cloudy skies and unseasonably low temperatures are expected to continue in the Santa Clarita Valley early this week, but by Wednesday the weather will begin to return to the SCV’s typically hot and sunny July conditions, National Weather Service forecasters said.

A flash flood watch has been issued from noon until this evening in areas around the Santa Clarita Valley including the Antelope Valley and local mountains ranges.

Sudden cloudbursts, as well as mud flows, are expected in Acton, Lancaster and Palmdale.

In the Santa Clarita Valley, a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms is forecast from this afternoon into tonight, forecasters said. Highs are expected to reach 85 today and 89 Tuesday.

Muggy conditions in recent days are blamed on a moist air mass carried into the area from the southeast, a condition more common in August.

While no rainfall was recorded at National Weather Service stations in Saugus, a trace of precipitation — just .06 of an inch, fell in the Newhall Pass early this morning.

By Wednesday, the valley will see mostly clear conditions with highs of 95, and Thursday’s forecast calls for 97 degrees under clear skies.
