DISCUSSION...A warming and drying trend is expected to develop
tomorrow and last through early next week. Overnight tonight,
lower elevation valleys will again be cool with very good
humidity recoveries, with perhaps even some light frost in spots.
Temperatures will be approximately 5 to 10 degrees warmer
tomorrow, and another 5 degrees warmer still on Sunday.
Nocturnal northeasterly winds will also begin to increase along
the exposed ridges beginning tonight, and steadily increase each
night through Tuesday. Gusty winds can be expected at elevation,
but lower elevation winds will likely be much lighter once the
nocturnal inversion develops. Humidity will also steadily drop,
including overnight recoveries.

Temperatures will continue to climb to above normal values Monday
through the end of the work week, with very low humidity expected
as well. Nocturnal northeast winds will also peak Monday night,
although these winds will primarily impact the ridges.
