FORECAST:

The upper level ridge will bring mostly sunny skies for today in a Northwest flow aloft. Will likely see some high cloud as the ridge slowly breaks down as the week progresses. Freezing levels will remain in the 3000 M + range for today with inverted temperatures. Cloudy but dry by Wednesday as the ridge slips South with some moisture entering our zone by Thursday. Difficult to estimate how much precip but if the ridge remains just South, we may see a few periods of light rain into the weekend and early next week. Some models are calling for more precip, which may happen if the low strengthens. Freezing levels will continue to remain high for this time of the year.
