TEMPERATURES WILL ONCE AGAIN BE ABOVE NORMAL WITH HIGHS IN THE MID  
90S. TONIGHT WILL REMAIN DRY AS WELL AS THE UPPER RIDGE STARTS TO  
SLIDE OFF TO THE EAST. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN ON THE WARM SIDE  
WITH LOWS FRIDAY MORNING IN THE LOW TO MID 70S.  
 
BY FRIDAY, A COLD FRONT WILL START TO APPROACH THE REGION FROM THE
