Air Conditioning To Heat

We will be flipping the switch from A/C to heat today as temperatures get a fall attitude adjustment. The big story will be the turn to some legitimate fall temperatures after a week with record-breaking heat. Skies clear this afternoon and bright, sunny and seasonably cool conditions will be with us through the weekend.

The RaysWeather.Com 2016-17 Winter Fearless Forecast was released Saturday morning--average to slightly above normal temperatures; less than average snow.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is plowing through the foothills late this morning and will be east of the area by noon. Early showers showers have exited quickly, yielding to afternoon clearing.

Sharply cooler air awaits the frontal passage, and that will squelch much of an afternoon temperature rise. Expect breezy conditions to accompany the cool invasion.

Canadian high pressure will be in full control of our weather this weekend. Saturday will be the coolest day, with some moderation in temperatures expected by Sunday afternoon. Some patchy frost is not out of the question at daybreak Sunday in outlying areas. Skies will be clear.

Another front will pass through dry and with little fanfare on Monday. Monday will be the mildest day next week ahead of the cold front. A continuation of dry weather is foreseen.
