Weather Discussion & Outlook

A Ridge of High Pressure continues to build inland over the interior of the Western United States today and that Ridge will bring us warm & dry weather today & Saturday. A strong Westerly Jet Stream will flatten the Ridge a bit over the weekend, and there is a slight dip of that jet to the south over Montana & northern Wyoming on Sunday. That will bring a few clouds, some of which might get low enough to cause a shower over the mountains, most likely earlier in the day. Mainly, that little dip in the jet will bring cooler temps & windier conditions over NW Wyoming on Sunday. Monday, Columbus Day, will be dry, plenty of sunshine again, not as windy, but temps staying just a little cooler. Then, we pretty much maintain the same the same weather pattern right thru Friday of next week, with the jet stream staying north of us and a Ridge of High pressure building back over the Western US. Temps gradually warming again thru the end of next week. No precip in sight until possibly later next weekend.
