Very quiet weather is expected through the short term domain. High pressure
that is control this afternoon will move across the forecast district
by tonight. Light southerly winds will resume by dusk with downslope
southwesterly winds through the overnight. These downslope winds will

Very quiet weather will continue through much of the long term domain.
A backdoor cold front will move across the forecast district Wednesday.
The EC does show some cold air advection at 850-hPa, and some of the
guidance is coming in cooler. This is particularly true across the northeast
zones. Have a gradient of lows 80s southwest to mid 70s northeast. The
cool high pressure and weak caa will continue Thursday with a gradient
of temperatures, warmest west and coolest east. For precipitation,
the chances are rather bleak. There may be some weak waa induced precip
Saturday. These pops are under 20 percent. The next appreciable chance
is not until next week a large trof is carved out west with moisture
advection downstream across the GP.
