Weather Discussion & Outlook

A Ridge of High pressure expands over the western US the next few days, extending from the southern Plains States all the way to the California Coast. No threat of any precip around here thru Sunday afternoon. Hardly any clouds today or Friday, except for some higher level clouds later Friday & Saturday, maybe a few cumulus clouds building Sunday afternoon. Temps continue to warm up nicely thru this weekend. Some weather passing by well to the north of us in Canada, and there is some monsoon moisture to the south of us bringing rain & T-storms to Arizona, New Mexico, parts of Colorado, and creeping into So. California the next 2-days. As the Ridge shifts just east of us on Monday, we get some piece of that monsoon moisture from the Desert Southwest coming up over us in a SW flow. That might kick off some thundershowers Mon. & Tues. Looks dry here Wednesday, then a Trof of Low pressure over BC will pass by to the north of us on Thursday and that may be the most active weather day next week, with a cold front passing and generating some thunderstorms, and cooling temps a bit. Right now it looks like High pressure returns next Fri.- Sun. with dry weather again.
