.DISCUSSION...
High pressure building in over the fire this weekend will result in
warming trend with temperatures back to near normal for late
September. Winds will be diurnally driven except for northwest
winds increasing each afternoon and evening on ridge tops. A weak
cold front will move through on Monday bring a slight chance for
showers but unlikely for wetting rains. Breezy westerly winds can
also be expected Monday afternoon behind the front. After that look
for warming temperatures Tuesday through at least Thursday as high
pressure strengthens.
