While it will remain generally dry today and Friday, there could be a couple showers early Saturday. The mild weather will go on a brief hiatus for the second half of the weekend.

Forecast Discussion

Weak high pressure will be in control of our weather today and Friday, but there’s still plenty of low-level moisture trapped to promote lots of morning low clouds. However, with more afternoon sunshine temperatures top out in the 15-20 degree above normal range.

A cold front is scheduled to push through the mountains Saturday morning. We expect a few showers with the front, but it won’t amount to much. Skies clear for Saturday afternoon and it will start cooling down during the afternoon.

Colder air lags the front a ways, but it will really make its presence felt for Saturday night. Sunday will be sunny but seasonably cool. We warm right back up early next week.

A warm front lifting northward through the area on Tuesday might provide our next opportunity for some needed rainfall starting Monday afternoon. A cold front coming through Wednesday night will keep shower chances alive through midweek.
