Temperatures will be on the up and up this week after Sunday's little set back. A chilly, strong north wind held temperatures down for the first day of November:
Warmer air will build in starting Monday as a ridge builds in the upper levels of the atmosphere.
The ridge will also force the jet stream (the storm track) to our north and lead to very quiet weather through the week. High pressure will be dominate at the surface, too, and contribute to the calm weather with mostly sunny skies each day:
Temperatures will be running around normal on Monday afternoon:
And then we step it up a notch on Tuesday, temperatures will be about ten degrees above normal:
Not much else will happen... temperatures will warm each day and run in the 60s and 70s. There will be little to no precipitation all the way through Saturday:

Enjoy the warmth while it lasts!
