Weather Outlook

A return to warm and dry conditions are expected across the West as another strong ridge of high pressure moves on shore from the Pacific Ocean. A weak disturbance moving through the ridge will create isolated wet storms in the Sierras of northern California late in the day.

Critical fire weather conditions will be possible across portions of West Texas and southeastern New Mexico as breezy postfrontal winds interact with low afternoon humidities.

Wet and cool conditions are expected across the central and northern Plains as a strong cold front moves east toward the Ohio River valley and the Mississippi River.

Warm and dry conditions are expected across Florida and Georgia as high pressure builds into both states from the Gulf of Mexico.

In Alaska, high pressure will become reestablished over the interior of the state and will lead to a return of warm and dry conditions
