Upper level ridging builds across the area on Sunday and Monday. This will allow high temperatures to surge into the 70s on these 2 days. Skies will clear out on Sunday and clouds will again increase on Monday due to another trough moving across the central US. Winds will be southerly around 5 mph on Saturday, from the north to east around 5 mph on Sunday, and from the east to southeast at 5-10 mph on Sunday.
