An upper low currently off the Oregon boarder continues to dominate our weather through Friday. So as cooler air filters into the area, we will have temps running just below seasonal norms, through Tuesday. Along with this, surface pressure gradients will give our district windy conditions with low humidity. By Wednesday, the winds will subside and temps begin to return to normal. Along with this a humongous high located in the nations mid section begins to lumber westward towards 4-Corners. This will lead to temps continuing in the normal range through the weekend. Right now any monsoonal moisture looks to only reach the Arizona/California border by the weekend. This could change so stay tuned for updates.
