We are sitting under a large area of high pressure that is clearing things out across much of the western United States. The result of these conditions are above seasonal temperatures and clear skies across the region.

Stop me if I sound like a broken record from what you have been hearing from Bob and Ed over the last couple of days, but the pattern is holding and will continue to do so into the early portions of this week.

Sunday high temperatures will mirror today’s with readings in the mid 40s. Skies will stay mostly clear and light breezes out of the southwest are expected.

Until later in the week the forecast will be the good kind of boring, the kind that means you can leave the winter jackets in the closet.

But don’t bury them too deeply in there as there is a shift coming later in the week. By Thursday morning we can expect some cooler temperatures and a shot of wintry precipitation. The conditions likely persist through Friday and leave things cooler by next weekend.

For now, enjoy the well above seasonal temperatures and clear skies and pay attention to the forecast over the course of the week as we get a better picture of what to expect later in the week.
