For the forecast, the upper level ridge will remain over our area today for another warm, sunny day. The ridge will begin to move East tomorrow allowing a Westerly flow to bring slightly cooler temperatures into our zone. This pattern may continue into Friday, with the possibility of a weak trough bringing cloud development Wednesday or Thursday. Only time will tell if this event happens.  Another upper level ridge will build for next weekend with warm sunny conditions.







The low is moving South near the middle of the week, may get some cloud development.

    Chance of a shower on Thursday, only time will tell.
