A persistent pattern continues for much of this week with cool
morning temperatures and above average highs. High pressure weakens
by the weekend leading to increased cloud cover and cooler daytime
temperatures for the end of week with cooler weather likely by next



A quiet weather pattern continues for the next several days as high
pressure yields light winds, cool morning lows, mild afternoons and
early morning inversions. Overall daytime highs will be in the
mid/upper 60s through the work week with low/mid 60s by the weekend.

High clouds will remain over the area as upper level moisture
streams across the periphery of an upper-level ridge from a low
north of Hawaii. This low will weaken into an open wave as it moves
eastward and into our area. No precipitation is expected, but will
see an increase in ridge winds late Wednesday evening through early
Friday morning.

We do have some prospects for a change to our weather by early next
week as long range ensemble models continue to come into better
agreement with a trough dropping into the Great Basin. Although
precipitation prospects aren't significant due to the inland
trajectory, we should see cooler temperatures for a longer period of
time along with a period of increased winds. Bottom line confidence
is increasing in cooler weather next week, but precipitation amounts
are expected to be limited. Fuentes



Light winds and VFR conditions expected at all terminals the next
few days. A wave brushing by the region will bring increasing mid
and upper level clouds today along with gusty ridge winds of up to
30-40kts by Thursday. -Zach/tf
