There is nothing on radar in our area this morning.

The rest of today through Sunday… The high pressure is weakening and moving east. Tomorrow we’ll see a few more clouds and slightly stronger winds.

The warm spots will flirt with a record high today:
Monday through Friday… A complicated pattern will set up with multiple systems moving across the west US. It’s a split flow pattern so the first system will slide to our south and the second will stay to our north – we’ll just get scraps. We’ll see a few spotty showers during this period. The best chances are Tuesday and Thursday

Mountains above 10,500ft: 2-4”
Mountains 9,500-10,500ft: 1-3”
Valley: 0.05” to 0.15” rain and 2 or 3 “rainflakes”
Winds… Monday afternoon gusts will be in the 20-25mph range. Tuesday through Friday afternoon gusts will be in the 15-20mph range.
