As we move through the week, a ridge of high pressure will stay locked into the western half of the country through Wednesday. By Thursday, it will begin to weaken over our area, and our temperatures will back off into the mid-70s by Friday.
Clouds will be on the increase Saturday and Sunday ahead of an approaching trough of low pressure. That may bring some rain chances to start out next week, possibly Monday and Tuesday. Weather Forecast Models are still mixed on the eventual forecast for our region, but you can count on the KAMC Stormteam to keep you updated this week.
Have a great start to the week!
