...WARM AND DRY WEATHER AHEAD...

OMEGA BLOCK OVER THE W COAST WILL KEEP US IN A DRY AND WARMING
PATTERN FOR THE NEXT SIX TO TEN DAYS. WILL SEE SOME HIGH CLOUDS
LATE SUN INTO EARLY TUESDAY AS A MERIDIONAL JET REMAINS OVER THE
HIGH PLAINS...BUT AS IT SHIFTS TO THE EAST WE WILL PROBABLY BE
MOSTLY CLOUD FREE FOR THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. WARMEST DAY WILL
PROBABLY BE WEDNESDAY...WHEN THE UPPER RIDGE IS OVER THE CENTRAL
ROCKIES. COULD SEE HIGHS NR 70 DEGREES THAT DAY OVER THE PLAINS.
THE NEXT CHANCE OF ANY WX WILL HOLD OFF TIL NEXT WEEKEND...WHEN A
SHORTWAVE MOVES THROUGH THE NRN ROCKIES. BUT ANY APPRECIABLE
PATTERN CHANGE SEEMS TO BE OUTSIDE THE FORECAST PERIOD. THE STRONG
POSITIVE PNA PATTERN LOOKS PRETTY STEADY FOR NOW...AND IT PROMISES
TO BE A VERY DULL WEEK FOR WX FORECASTERS AND SNOW ENTHUSIASTS.
