High pressure (“Arch” shape in blue arrows) has brought us sunshine and warmer temperatures that will continue today. An upper level low (Shaded “U” shape with blue arrows) will move closer to shore bringing more clouds and cooling down our temperatures Wednesday. It doesn’t look like we’ll see any showers for a while, at least not from what the computer models see at the moment.
