.DISCUSSION...
Upper level trough forecast to move through the area in the morning
with clearing conditions in the afternoon. Westerly flow aloft
behind the trough will continue upslope flow with scattered cumulus
clouds developing. Clearing conditions Sunday evening, but this will
be short-lived as an incoming weather system will bring rain and
snow showers to the area on Monday. Moist conditions should result
in widespread IFR conditions on Monday, especially on the windward
side of the Crest.
