Discussion:

Little change this week from last week's pattern. The western U.S.
ridge is a little stronger this week. We still got a cold front
yesterday, despite my prior forecast. And, it looks like another cold
front will move close to the state on Thursday.

Temperatures will be in the upper 80s Monday warming to the mid 90s on
Wednesday. The cold front should provide a slight cool down, assuming
it moves far enough south, with highs in the upper 80s on Thursday.
Weekend temps will be in the low 90s. Normal high is 91F and we'll be
right in the ballpark this week. All in all, a typical early July week.

Models don't show much tropics wise and NHC isn't talking about
anything. For now, it looks to be quiet in the tropics this week.
