Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer. The city water parks (below) closed at 6 pm today for the season. We are heading into a very dry, very warm workweek ahead. A giant ridge of high pressure has built up over California, Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. At the same time, Hurricane Kay is developing along the west coast of Mexico. The trajectory of Kay from the National Hurricane Center is posted below. That ridge of high pressure will turn Kay out to sea, away from Mexico and even the Borderland. High pressure will act as a “protective shield,” so to speak. Here’s your forecast…
