Large upper ridge over the Rockies will shift east tonight and
tomorrow bringing warmer temperatures into the region for the rest of
the week. Highs both Friday and Saturday will be in the upper 70s to
lower 80s, almost 20 degrees above average but a few degrees shy of
records. Increasing southerly winds will accompany this warmup and
will keep fog much less widespread tomorrow morning than it was
today. These winds could also lead to an increased potential for
wildfires on Friday although humidity values will stay high enough
to prevent any red flag conditions.

A weak moisture-starved boundary will settle into the area Saturday
night leading to a 10-12 degree drop in temperatures for Sunday
(though still above average). This lack of moisture will lead to a
dry frontal passage. Temperatures will then bounce back into the 70s
and 80s for Halloween, followed by increasing rain chances by Tuesday
and Wednesday.
