Soggy Saturday; Sunday Improvement

Cloudy, cool and wet is the weather tagline for today. There will be some fog on the higher ridges as well. Improvement is slated for your Sunday, however. After some morning clouds, sunshine will be on the increase, and that will give temperatures a nice afternoon boost. Next week looks dry and very pleasant, with the possible exception of a Tuesday morning shower.

Forecast Discussion

A wave along a front is being aided by an upper level low pressure system that will be rotating across the area during the course of today. That spells a wet day across the mountains, and considerably cooler behind the front.

The weather should turnaround nicely on Sunday. After some early clouds, skies will turn mostly sunny. The sunshine will promote a nice boost in afternoon high temperatures, too.

Next week features some fine October weather, with mostly dry/clear conditions. A front will pass through Tuesday morning, and it may bring a shower or two. Another dry cold front will pass through on Friday producing maybe a few extra clouds and setting us up for a crisp fall weekend to follow.

Temperatures will be closer to normal next week, and that means some nighttime lows getting down into the lower 40s (even a few upper 30s).
