There is nothing on radar in our area this morning.
*** Cold spots in valley will flirt with freezing temps each morning this week. ***
Rest of today through Tuesday… A ridge of high pressure will slowly weaken and move east. We’ll see a lot of sun and have pleasant seasonal temps. There is a slight chance for a spotty shower or thunderstorm Monday and Tuesday afternoons, mostly over the mountains. I expect most of us to stay dry.
Winds… Winds each morning will be light and variable. Beginning around 11am each day winds will increase into the 10-20mph range out of the southwest.
Temps… Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday highs will be in the high 60s to mid-70s and lows will be in the mid-30s to mid-40s. The cold spots will flirt with lows near freezing each morning.
Wednesday… Behind the trough, upper-level winds will increase and drier air will move in. We’ll be partly cloudy, dry, and breezy.
Winds… Afternoon gusts will be in the 15-25mph range.
Temps… Highs will be in the high 60s to mid-70s and lows will be in the mid-30s to low 40s. The cold spots will flirt freezing temps each morning.
Thursday and Friday… A stronger system will miss us to the north. We’ll see a few more clouds, a spotty shower or thunderstorm, and gusty winds.
Winds… Gusts on Thursday will be in the 15-25mph range. They’ll increase Friday into the 20-30mph range.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-60s to low 70s and lows will be in the mid-30s to low 40s. The cold spots will flirt with freezing temps.
Mark will take over tomorrow.
