Synopsis: A high pressure ridge from the Great Lakes to North Florida will slowly move east, emerging over the Atlantic late Saturday. A better defined high pressure cell will then form northeast of the Bahamas on Sunday, extending a ridge westward across North Florida on Monday. That ridge axis will settle south down the Florida Peninsula on Tuesday, bringing a decrease to gentle and moderate easterly breezes.
