We have a dynamic weather pattern over our area, all driven by an EPAC ridge of high pressure and a Four Corners low pressure center. This is doing two things, driving cooler air down into our district and creating breezy to windy conditions. As the low weakens and the ridge builds in, by Wednesday, the winds should reduce and temps will try to return to normal. That ridge will stay over the area through Saturday, giving us dry conditions.
