A ridge of high pressure will keep the heat around all week but it won’t be quite as intense Wednesday or Thursday with highs in the low 90s... we’ll see another chance for storms overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

The ridge of high pressure will also work to funnel in smoke from fires burning out to the W... don’t be surprised if you see hazy skies or even smell smoke at times this week.
