FORECAST REMAINS LARGELY UNCHANGED.  NO PRECIPITATION IS IN THE
FORECAST FOR THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS.

COLD FRONT HAS PASSED THROUGH ALL OF THE FORECAST AREA.  COLD AIR
ADVECTION AND ABUNDANT CLOUD COVER HAS BROUGHT TEMPERATURES WELL
BELOW THOSE OF RECENT DAYS.  EXPECT BRIEF CLEARING ACROSS
NORTHWESTERN SECTIONS THIS EVENING...WITH MID- AND HIGH-LEVEL
CLOUDS RETURNING TONIGHT.  THUS...WE ARE FORECASTING TEMPERATURES TO
REMAIN ABOVE FREEZING AREA-WIDE.

MODELS IN REASONABLE AGREEMENT WITH GENERAL PATTERN FOR THE UPCOMING
DAYS.   SEMI-ZONAL FLOW TONIGHT AND TUESDAY FOLLOWS DEPARTURE OF
BROAD MID-LEVEL TROF.  BUILDING RIDGE OVER SOUTHWESTERN U.S. CAUSES
NORTHWEST FLOW TO DEVELOP AND STRENGTHEN WEDNESDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY.  RIDGE TRAVERSES FORECAST AREA FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING.  SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT THEN DEVELOPS AND STRENGTHENS
SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY WITH DEEPENING OF NEXT WESTERN TROF.

PASSAGE OF NEXT COLD FRONT ON THURSDAY EXPECTED TO BE DRY.
