.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will bring a much drier weather pattern this week
with no rain expected. Expect moderate to occasionally gusty
east winds Monday night into Tuesday morning with rapid drying
expected at the upper slopes/ridges. Humidity recovery won`t be
great Tuesday morning, but with the recent rainfall, there should
be some recovery in the valleys/canyons where patchy fog may also
occur, especially in more sheltered locations. Ridge recoveries
will remain moderate Tuesday night, then could a bit better
Wednesday night as a weak trough temporarily flattens the upper
high. However, there could be another period of east winds.
