The see-saw battle between low pressure in the northwest and high pressure over New Mexico will continue today. So, temperatures a bit above normal today as high pressure wins round one. But in round two, low pressure swings on to the West Coast and pushes the high back eastward. This will bring down max temps through out our District, a few degrees, over the weekend. By Monday, high pressure re-intensifies and things warm up again, a couple of degrees, into next week.
BTW, I would like to say thanks to Debbie and Steve over at Chalfant Big Trees. My new pine trees are GREAT.
