Weather Discussion & Outlook

Very unsettled weather pattern this week, with a lot of stuff going on in the atmosphere. One weaker upper level Low pressure Trof is moving from the Southwestern US to the Four Corners today & Tuesday, with the northern edge of the clouds & moisture & unstable air nudging closer to us in NW WY. That Low moves Northeast into the Plains by Thursday and at the same time that Trof is on the move, another stronger Trof of Low pressure is moving into the Pacific Northwest. That Trof is stalling out and hanging over CA & NV Wednesday thru Friday, before swinging east over Utah & Colorado this weekend. Then, there is a third smaller Low pressure center that develops over SW Montana and keeps some clouds, showers & cooler temps around here over Motherís Day weekend. Expect showers most days, thunderstorms possible the next few days, then some snow in mountains end of week or this weekend, down to near 7500-ft. And our afternoon high temps progressively cooling thru the week.
