Precipitation summary… There was no measurable precip reported in the last 24 hours.
There is nothing on radar in our region this afternoon.
*** Dry with temps near to slightly above average into the first week of January. ***
*** A more typical El Nino pattern will try to set up the second part of next week. ***
Rest of today through Wednesday… Ridging will stick with us through Saturday and give us lots of sun and light winds. Sunday the ridge will move to our east.
A weak system will slide to our south Sunday night and another one will do the same on Tuesday, so we’ll see more clouds. I think we’ll stay dry, but there could be a stray snowshower over the mountains Sunday night and Tuesday. Temps will be near to slightly higher than seasonal averages.
Winds… Peaks will be 5-10mph.
Temps… Highs Thursday will be in the high 30s to mid-40s and lows will be in the mid-single digits to mid-teens. Friday and Saturday highs will range from near 40 to the mid-40s and lows will be in the high single digits to high teens. Highs Sunday through Wednesday will be in the mid-30s to low 40s and lows will be 10-20.
Two-week outlook… A more typical El Nino pattern will try to set up and things should get more active for us the second half of next week. The first couple of systems might miss us to the south, but there is hope!
My next post will be on Saturday.
