We are mostly dry and warming to near 80F over the next couple of days and above 80F mid week. A cool down and ‘maybe’ some showers return for the weekend. There is a slight chance of a thundershower some afternoons rolling out of the mountains.
Beautiful weather continues with high pressure at the surface (Figure 1) and a ridge aloft (not shown). Other than a slight chance of wandering afternoon showers – we remain dry and keep warming up.
The Longer Range Forecast:
We should rise above 80’F Tuesday to Thursday (Figure 2). The rain chances through Thursday are very light with not much expected in town (Figure 3). Even the mountains will only see spotty higher amounts. A quick look at the 5 day snowfall map (Figure 4) looks very spring-like with only small amounts only at the higher elevations.
There is a cool down and some rain chances returning Friday and Sunday this week – but is too far to make a headline about. More later!
