Today in “Oh! NOW I Get It!” #2

“The exceptional temperatures are thanks to a “heat dome,” or a ridge of high pressure, becoming established over the Four Corners region. It will meander west in the coming days, reinforced by a secondary zone of high pressure cresting to the north in southwest Canada on Friday. By Saturday, that additional high pressure will swing through Alberta and Saskatchewan; the synergy between the two will yield a multiday stretch of highs 20 degrees or more above average.”
