.DISCUSSION...
Weak high pressure drifting across the region today will bring dry
and mainly sunny conditions through this afternoon with general
daytime winds light from the west and terrain driven in areas with
steeper slopes. a very weak weather disturbance begins moving
into the region this evening for increasing clouds and perhaps an
isolated light shower, mainly in the evening period. A weakening
Pacific weather system will move across the region Monday bringing
additional cloud-cover and a chance for showers with temperatures
slightly cooler and RH somewhat higher. Winds will also shift
from westerly to northwesterly by Monday afternoon. Drier
conditions move back into the region Tuesday and Wednesday. A
somewhat stronger weather system moves into the region on
Thursday with better chances for widespread rain showers and
cooler temperatures. Hoenisch
