Upper High Shifts To West; Brings A Drier Week
Weak northwesterly flow aloft brought on by a shift of the upper level high to the west, kept wet monsoon air at bay. Residual moisture did manage to create some scattered showers and gave us one rainy day on Thursday with isolated showers floating around on Friday and Saturday. Dry conditions began Sunday and continued through Tuesday with temperatures soaring into the mid 80s.
