DISCUSSION...

After a very windy day complete with blowing dust and high fire
danger, we are in for a nice and quiet week. Weak upper troughing
over the region through Thursday is expected to keep winds light and
temperatures near normal during the day. Very dry air at the surface
will however allow temperatures to fall well below normal at
night. Our next weather maker will enter the West late this week.
Ahead of this system, temperatures will warm back above normal and
winds will increase Friday afternoon. Fire weather concerns will
increase by this time, especially since precipitation continues to
be absent from the forecast. An upper trough will then slide east
across the Plains dragging a cold front through the area
Saturday. Temperatures will cool back below normal for the weekend
before moderating early next week.
