Moisture diminishes a bit as a strong ridge dominates the weather through Tuesday AM. We will see upper 90’sF until moisture returns Tuesday PM and temperatures drop about 10F.
The wind flow across the nation is bringing us air flow and moisture from the west/Pacific (Figure 1). With a ridge growing over the southern U.S. and Colorado (Figure 3) – we dry out and get quite hot Sunday-Tuesday (Figure 2).
The Longer Range Forecast:
In the more distant future, the ridge will weaken, a trough takes a bite out of it by Tuesday so we see moisture return – storm chances return as well for a bit. It is going to get quiet after the Saturday clouds, winds, and showers move on.
