Warm And Mild Temperatures Continue

Possible Record High Temperatures Today

 

The mild pattern will persist through much of next week as the large scale flow pattern remains unusually persistent. An upper level ridge system will cause temperatures to warm well above average. Today will be the warmest day with the potential for record high temperatures at some locations. A Pacific cold front will arrive for the weekend with temperatures falling closer to seasonal values albeit still slightly above average. Temperatures are expected to rebound quickly next week as another upper level ridge builds across the area.
