DISCUSSION...

We had near record low temperatures this morning in the upper
30's to lower 40's, kicking off one of our last below normal temp
days before temperatures swap back above normal. Surface high
settled over the area this morning with dry air and calm winds
bring us a cold morning. Temps this afternoon are incredible
pushing the upper 70's with light winds and clear skies.

A south wind and an increasing thermal ridge in the mid levels
will start the warming process for us Wednesday ushering in above
normal temps with highs in the upper 80's and we may even see some
low 90's. Upper level disturbance over the mid west will force a
weak front through Thursday afternoon not effecting the temps much
and changing the wind direction from the east briefly. Another
upper level disturbance will force another front through Sunday is
set to bring in another front that will drop our temps to near
normal.

The ridge out west will remain stationary preventing any chances
of precip leaving us dry. This warm, dry, and boring pattern is
likely to proceed for the coming weeks of early October.
