.SYNOPSIS...
Dry weather will prevail with mostly sunny skies through the

from a few degrees below normal today to above normal by midweek.

.DISCUSSION...
An amplified pattern continues with a long wave trough over the
Great Basin and an Eastern Pacific ridge nosing in over western
Canada. A cool northerly flow persists over California but the
airmass is modifying each day with highs running up 2-6 degrees
above yesterday. The ridge will gradually build inland allowing
the warming trend to continue this week. Temperatures will climb
back to near normal Tuesday then nudge a few degrees above normal
Wednesday through the end of the week.

Dry conditions are expected through the upcoming week with just a
few clouds at times. The models do show a short wave dropping down
over the lower Colorado River Valley Tuesday night and Wednesday,
but moisture is progged to stay to the east of the Sierra.

A north to northeasterly off shore flow will continue through the
week. This will bring some breezy to locally gusty conditions to
the mountains and desert. Winds will be strongest during the late
night and morning periods for the next few days but will remain
below advisory level.
