FORECAST:

A retreating cold front has left low level cloud and some rain over night. A ridge of high pressure to the West will eventually bring sunny skies in a Northerly flow aloft. The ridge will strengthen for the first day of September for a sunny day. A shortwave trough will likely push through on Wednesday with cloudier skies and a chance of a shower. Ridge rebuilds Thursday with warm temperatures and sunny skies into early next week. Guesstimates: warm sunny weather for the week except Wednesday, 0-trace by Thursday am.
