*** Fire danger is high and will gradually get worse. ***
*** There is a slight chance for spotty showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon. Keep an eye out for new fires. ***
Rest of Today through Friday… The subtropical ridge will remain to our southwest and west. We’ll see a little surge of moisture and instability this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon leading to a chance of spotty showers and thunderstorms. The rest of this week will be dry.
Temps… Today highs will be 80-90 and lows will be in the low 40s to low 50s. The rest of the week highs will be in the mid 80s to low 90s. The warm spots will get into the mid-90s. Lows will be in the mid-40s to mid-50s.
Winds… Today and tomorrow afternoon winds will peak around 15mph. Tuesday through Friday, afternoon winds will peak around 25mph. The windy spots could hit 30mph Tuesday and Friday.
Next 15 days…
The subtropical ridge will remain to our southwest and west until around the 12th and keep us mostly dry. Starting around the 12th, the ridge will move a little east, nearly over our heads, and subtropical moisture will slowly filter into our area.
I’ll try to get a post out tomorrow, otherwise it will be on Tuesday.
