...VERY WARM THIS WEEK...

.DISCUSSION...
MUCH OF THE UPCOMING WEEK LOOKS TO BECOME VERY WARM AND HUMID ACROSS
THE REGION. MUCH OF THE TIME DRY CONDITIONS LOOK TO PREVAIL WITH
HIGH PRESSURE SETTLING IN AND NO MAJOR SYSTEMS EXPECTED TO AFFECT
THE AREA. THERE ARE SOME OPPORTUNITIES FOR AN ISOLATED SHOWER OR
STORM...BUT THESE WILL BE VERY FEW AND FAR BETWEEN.
