upper level high pressure will remain in place today...and
most of tomorrow. Expect afternoon high temperatures and heat
index values to rival those observed yesterday...therefore areal
outline of heat advisory will be left alone. Most of the area will
see another hot day for Wednesday...but will let next shift
assess potential areal outline adjustments for Wednesday. Upper
ridge begins to break down some late Wednesday...with low precipitation
chances across the northwest zones Wednesday night as a weak
boundary approaches. Ridge will continue a modest
retrograde...however upcoming rain chances will remain limited as
the overall strength of the ridge doesnt appear to be
significantly compromised. Some cooler temperatures will work into
the at least the northern part of the forecast area by later in the
week...which will offer at least some areas a few days of relief
from the recent heat. Temperatures look to rebound a few degrees by late
in the weekend and early next week. Mean ridge positioning may
stay far enough west...thus keeping the hottest temperatures out
of the region.
