With a tight pressure gradient in place strong winds in excess of 30 mph continue today. In fact, winds remain gusty into the early part of our Tuesday.

A building area of high pressure moves from the plains and slides east. With a stronger southerly component to the wind later in the week temperatures moderate into the upper 60s and lower 70s. Looks like a dry forecast as well into the upcoming weekend.
