Skies have been partly cloudy for most of the day allowing us to warm up quite nicely into the lower 80s. We will drop back down into the 50s tonight and from there we will continue a nice warming streak.

As Monday dawns a warming streak will begin as everyone tops out in the mid to upper 80s with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s. All of this will be thankful to high pressure that is building in and will continue to intensify over everyone. With the high pressure building over us temperatures will quickly top out in the lower 90s area wide by the middle of the week. With the high pressure comes relatively calm winds which won't allow enough moisture to move back into the area. You can look at that as two ways whether good or bad, one being that the low moisture content of the atmosphere will allow temperatures to quickly fall back to normal lows by nightfall and two no moisture means our rain chances are slim to none.

A little side note, this is the first time we will have seen a 90 degree temperature reading since September 19, 2013.
