A cold front on Tuesday evening is likely to bring a cool day on Wednesday, just like last week. Unlike last week, Wednesday is not likely to be overcast all day and there is even less chance for rain this week. The cool down should be short. After a cold start on Thursday morning, temperatures are likely to be above average again by the end of the week. Since precipitation is likely to be light, if it occurs at all in the foothills and plains, we will still be dealing with elevated wildfire risk when warm weather returns at the end of the week. In the higher mountains there is a better chance for light snow accumulation, but nothing very big.
Today’s warm dry wind in and along the foothills should relax a little bit by Tuesday, but the cold front Tuesday evening may bring a renewed period of gusty northwest winds for a few hours.
