*** The cold spots will dip below freezing each night. ***
Tonight through Tuesday afternoon… High pressure over the west US will give us lots of sun, dry weather, and pleasant fall temps.
Winds… Will peak around 15mph in the afternoons. Winds Tuesday afternoon will be a little stronger in the 15-20mph range.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-60s to mid-70s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s.
Tuesday night through Thursday afternoon… A weak trough will move through from the northwest. Northwest is not a favorable trajectory for us and there won’t be much moisture, so my expectations are low. We’ll see a few more clouds and spotty showers, mostly over the mountains.
Winds… Gusts Wednesday afternoon will be in the 20-25mph range and then they’ll drop a little Thursday into the 15-20mph range.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s.
My next forecast post will be on Saturday.
