FORECAST:

Upper ridge with low level offshore flow will bring record breaking temperatures in an Easterly flow aloft. The upper flow will switch to Southeasterly later this am and we should see the FL reach 3000+ meters with day time heating. This pattern will continue into Thursday, should see some cloud development from a weak frontal band approaching the coast on Thursday afternoon. Still difficult to determine precip amounts for Thursday/Friday. More on that later in the week.
