Area Forecast Discussion

.SHORT TERM DISCUSSION...

.Synopsis...
Weather system still on track for Wednesday. A fairly weak system
with valley showers and isolated thunderstorms and pass level
light snow.
&&

.Discussion...

Still expecting next weather system to impact the area tomorrow.
Models have trended a bit weaker and slightly further east with
the energy. End result is less coverage of activity in the valley
with an overall downslope northwest flow at all levels. Even
though models not forecasting too much QPF in the valley there is
plenty of instability so there should be showers here and there in
the valley and should also be some lighting. Have just tweaked
pops a bit but not enough to resend zones. Rasch


.EXTENDED DISCUSSION (Saturday THROUGH Tuesday)

High pressure will remain in control for the weekend into early next week.
This will bring dry weather, mostly clear skies, and warming
temperatures. A period of breezy northerly flow is likely over the
weekend as well. High temperatures will near the 90 degree mark in
the Valley by Sunday with widespread 90s (10 to 15 degrees above
normal) possible by Monday.
