.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Friday. Upper ridging will dominate
the West with dry and warmer conditions thru the period. The
exception will come on Wed when an upper trof moving along the
Canadian border flattens the ridge thru Thursday...resulting in
isold aftn eve tstms near the Divide. Dry conditions return on Fri
as the upper ridge builds back up. Hedges

.LONG TERM...Friday night through Tuesday.  High pressure will
hold over the west and the state. It will be at its strongest
through Saturday. After that, a closed low offshore will begin to
undercut the ridge and move toward us early next week. As it does,
we will see a gradual increase in moisture and potential for
thunderstorms. It looks like several places will have their first
shot at hitting 90 for the year so far. The latest forecast does
call for record or near record highs Saturday through Monday. Keyes


.AVIATION...VFR weather is expected with perhaps some mid level
clouds on occasion. Keyes


.PIH Watches/Warnings/Advisories...
