For the forecast, the persistent, relentless, upper level ridge continues to dominate the weather pattern. Sunny skies for today into Tuesday, weak upper low moves through the area Tuesday evening into Wednesday. The low looks dry so expect unsettled conditions with a mix of sun and cloud. The upper level ridge rebuilds for Thursday into the weekend. Sunny skies are forecasted for Thursday and Friday with freezing levels above 3500 meters. There are rumblings of some moisture heading our way next week, more on that later. Peak to Valley race is coming up next week, you know what happens sometimes when a race is scheduled.

Not seeing much influence from the low forecasted for Wednesday.

The low is forecasted to brush by on Tuesday-Wednesday.
