Short-Term Weather Outlook
High pressure will slowly build
into the region following the unseasonably cold low which continues to track east. Conditions will also continue to improve,
and temperatures will gradually moderate as well. It appears the ridge will be rather dirty at first with quite a few clouds
streaming over the northern periphery at times, and I can't rule out the chance of a mainly mtn shower through early in
the new work week either.
High pressure (and our Indian Summer) will dominate
the pattern through much of the new work week and into next weekend. Temperatures will warm to above normal levels, and dry
conditions will also prevail. Looking a bit beyond the extended period, the ridge will begin to lose ground here in the
Northwest which should open the door for cooler conditions and a return to showery weather.
