&& .SHORT TERM /SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT/... As of 245 AM Friday... This weekend looks quiet and mild, though an abundance of high clouds will help to filter out the sun during the day. Sunday will be the warmest as low level southeast flow boosts afternoon highs, probably a hair past the warmest guidance. An upper level system approaches Monday and becomes absorbed by an advancing trof in the northern stream Monday night. This spells an unsettled start to the work week, with rain developing from south to north late Monday. Most of the higher rainfall amounts should stay east of the CWA, though strong easterly low level flow is likely to lead to bullseye amounts on our eastern slopes by Tuesday. && .LONG TERM /TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/... As of 255 AM Friday... The upper level system departs to the north late Tuesday, though another impulse within the mean trof will rotate through Wednesday and Thursday. This will maintain the threat of showers, though it will continue to be mild. && .AVIATION /16Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...
