For the forecast, upper ridge will bring sunny and warm weather today through Wednesday as a dry Northerly flow influences our area. The ridge will move East as an offshore upper trough begins to push into the area bringing cloudier, unsettled conditions into the weekend. The trough will intensify on Saturday with cooler temperatures and the possibility of some precipitation into Sunday.
