.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Thursday night...Isolated showers
are expected near the Nevada border through this evening,
otherwise dry weather will prevail through the period as an upper
ridge builds into the region. Winds will be generally light (less
than 10 mph). The warming trend will continue, with highs around
10 degrees above normal on Thursday.

.LONG TERM...Friday through Tuesday...Temperatures on Friday will
peak 10-15 degrees above normal as an offshore ridge maintains
mild conditions. Saturday will see increased clouds and breezy
conditions ahead of the next system. A trough will drop over the
West Central Mountains late on Saturday and encompass the entire
region through Monday, causing temperatures to drop a couple
degrees below normal. Snow levels will begin near 5000-6000 ft MSL
on Saturday and will fall to valley floors by Sunday as showers
set up across higher terrain. Conditions are expected to clear on
Monday under northwest flow, though residual moisture may stir up
some showers across the mountains early next week.
