Discussion

High pressure expands to the west coast today and dry, pleasantly warm conditions will continue in the LA metro region for much of the week. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Isaac will strengthen over the next 24-48 hours as it approaches the central Gulf coastal states of Louisiana and Mississippi. It is likely to make landfall in that region by mid-week - possibly even reaching major hurricane status (ie category 3 or higher) beforehand.
