High pressure will begin to build into the area today but really won’t strengthen until this weekend and with some instability still lingering we could see a few afternoon snow showers and isolated thunderstorm’s in the mountains. Lower elevations will just see a few more clouds this afternoon. With that strengthening high pressure this weekend though we’ll see increasing sunshine and a dry trend begin with unseasonably warm afternoon highs, but still cold overnight lows. Temperatures on the east side will warm to the mid to upper 50s and the west side will be in the mid-60s.
Next week the ridge will start to flatten out bringing a chance for showers at the coast on Tuesday and as of now it looks like most of the precipitation will be contained to the coast and mountains through Wednesday with a better chance for more widespread showers for Thursday.
