Discussion

An upper level ridge will develop overhead starting tomorrow and this will lead to drier and warmer conditions for much of the second half of the week. Temperatures will close in on seasonal levels by tomorrow afternoon and then could actually rise to slightly above normal levels by the weekend. The upper level ridge will tend to weaken some by early next week and this will begin a slight downward trend in temperatures by that time.
