...DRY WEATHER WITH A WARMING TREND...

.DISCUSSION...
The upper level low responsible for the recent cool and moist weather
will slowly move off to the east the next couple of days. Meanwhile, an
upper level ridge will gradually move inland over the Pacific Northwest.
This will bring a warming trend to the region with temperatures
returning to seasonal normals by Wednesday. Some mid and high clouds
will move across the area in north-northwest flow ahead of the ridge
axis. Drier air will spread over the area the middle of next week as
the ridge moves overhead and flow aloft weakens.
