For the forecast, a weak low pressure system in a Westerly flow will move through the area today with a few breaks in the clouds. The air mass is slightly unstable and appears to be relatively dry. Slight chance of some dry lightning later this afternoon. There is still a chance of some isolated showers expected for today but it looks like a short lived high is developing.  A weakening trough will pass through Tuesday with unsettled conditions, mostly sunny Tuesday morning with some cloud development in the afternoon. We can expect slightly cooler temperatures for today into Tuesday but they will go back to the low 30's as the ridge rebuilds for Wednesday into the weekend with warm sunny conditions.

    Southerly flow last night will shift to Westerly this morning.

    Chance of some isolated showers today.

    Dry Tuesday as the trough moves East.

    Ridge begins to build Tuesday, strengthening Wednesday.

    Hot by Thursday.
