FORECAST:

The upper ridge will strengthen today in an Northeasterly flow aloft. The FL will spike to around 3500 meters and we may see some afternoon cloud from the low now over mid to west coast of the U.S. The ridge will continue to grow in an Easterly direction. The low will remain to the South for a few days.
There is still potential for the odd shower in the afternoons on Tuesday and Wednesday. Time will tell.
Above normal temperatures seems to be the norm for the week. Have fun on gaper day if your going up.
Do not forget the sun screen!!
