National Weather Service forecasters predict a high of 81 in the Modesto area on Monday, followed by 85 on Tuesday and 92 Wednesday. Lows will drop into the mid 50s early in the week to about 60 by Wednesday.
Some high clouds are expected, as are breezes of about 11 mph, coming from the northwest.
After Wednesday, temperatures look to hover around the same, dropping a degree or two heading into the weekend.
