Ridge Flattens Just Enough For Some Relief
Our weather this summer has been largely governed by an upper-level pattern that has kept the storm track and all associated cool fronts north of the area. This ridge has finally flattened just enough to bring a couple of cool fronts into the area. The first arrived Sunday night, the second will arrive Thursday afternoon, and we'll get a third over the weekend. This pattern will keep lows and highs fairly close to seasonal averages over the next 5 to 7 days. There is some indication, however, of the ridge building back in next week, resulting in another stretch of above-normal temps.
