All winter long I've been talking about upper-level troughs of low pressure, closed lows, and occasionally cut off lows. These systems are what help produce our winter weather across the state. Mother nature is taking a chill pill this week. None of these for awhile.
A ridge of high pressure is forecast to gradually build eastward into northern Mexico and the Desert Southwest this week. This ridge will shove the jet stream as well as the storm track well to the north of our area, and the result will be sunny skies with highs mostly in the 70's all week long. By the end of the week we will be back in the 80's, and its possible that some of us may be flirting with the 90-degree mark by next weekend.

It is still March after all so don't expect our weather to remain quiet for long. Long-range forecast models indicate that our next potential spring storm (wind storm) will arrive in the area by around the middle of next week. Sorry, but at this time this storm does not look promising as far as rain goes for us either.
