WEATHER DISCUSSION: Hot and above average temperatures are going to be the new norm through this week as high temperatures kick us off in the upper 80's and 90's today with sunny skies. Expect lows down in the 50's and 60's tonight with mostly clear skies. An upper level ridge presently centered over the west coast of the Unites States will be the driver of warming trend and heat eave this week. The hottest days of the week look to be Wednesday and Thursday once the ridge axis moves overhead. Highs Wednesday and Thursday look to climb well into the 90`s at most lower elevation areas, with triple digits for some. It's reccomended to keep outdoor activities to the morning hours when temperatures will not be as hot.
