Our strong upper ridge flattens a bit today in response to a trough moving through the PACNW. So slightly cooler temps and breezy conditions later today and Wednesday, but no moisture for our area. In fact, the ridge re-strengthens on Wednesday forming a Rex Block pattern. This will keep any storms in the Pacific pushed well to our north. Our forecast area will stay dry through the upcoming weekend and into Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday.
