Another day of record temperatures is expected. High pressure will continue over the western U.S. but will slowly weaken over the next week (see map below). The main weather feature for the next 48 hours will be wind. Winds will begin to increase from the northwest and north this afternoon and shift to the northeast and east tonight. Strong and gusty northeast to east winds will occur tonight through midday Wednesday. Winds will be light Thursday through next weekend. Temperatures start to cool Tuesday but will still be 3 to 6 degrees above normal by the weekend.
While longer range models show the high weakening it still looks dry through the 20th of September.
