A ridge of high pressure will stay over the area locking the the hotter temps and keeping the forecast relatively dry. Highs will fluctuate slightly but stay between the low to upper 90s. Rain chances also generally stay clear of the area... very slight chances are here for the end of the week but we may miss out completely!
