Discussion

High pressure that has been covering the middle part of the country in recent days will expand to the west over the next few days. This will tend to prevent marine layer clouds from hanging around past the early morning hours and will help to boost afternoon temperatures to around 70 degrees in the LA metro region. An upper level trough could approach the west coast later this weekend and, as a result, we could cool off slightly early next week. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Debby will meander around the northeastern Gulf of Mexico for the next couple of days continuing to dump heavy rainfall on the Gulf coastal region of Florida where some 20 inches has already been measured in spots. Debby will head northeastward later this week crossing Florida and moving to a position just off of the Southeast US coast. The other big weather story nationwide has been the extreme heat across the Rockies and Central Plains. Yesterday, for example, Denver, Colorado tied its all-time high temperature record of 105 degrees which had been matched only twice in its history (2005, 1878) since record-keeping began there in 1872. This extreme heat will expand to the South and Mid-Atlantic by late this week and weekend.
