.DISCUSSION...
Fairly extensive cloud cover expected to persist through much of the
morning, with clearing expected this afternoon as isentropic lift
diminishes.  Expecting warmer conditions today with all locations
climbing to above freezing as pressures continue to fall with
deepening of lee trof and eastward displacement of cold surface
ridge.

Saturday expected to be much warmer with highs in the mid-50s to
mid-60s as downsloping winds prevail.  Sunday expected to be warm
also until next cold front arrives during the afternoon.  Models
suggest that Sunday cold front will not be nearly as strong as our
most recent one.  Thus above-normal high temperatures are expected
Saturday through Monday.

Models diverge beginning Monday night and Tuesday.  Another strong
cold front is likely to arrive by Wednesday, but timing is far from
certain. Low certainty in temperatures beyond Tuesday, owing to
unknown strength of post-frontal cold airmass.  Better certainty of
continued dry forecast, with no precipitation expected next seven
days. 03
