Gong forward it appears that we will be turning off the Monsoon flow from the south and drying out beginning Wednesday into the following week. A stout ridge of high pressure aloft is forecast to shut down our moisture feed from the south and heat up the region for the next week. Locally a few daily record to near record high temperatures over the next 7 days appear to be in the making.
