Forecast Discussion

Skies are mostly clear Saturday night in a downslope flow from the mountains. Chilly air is settling into the Foothills in a NW flow.

Next week features three lows moving west to east across the Gulf: Monday, Wednesday, and next weekend. The strength of each remains in doubt; however, best thinking at this point is a rather ho-hum week with the potential for a more potent system next weekend.

Monday's low increases clouds late Sunday. Light rain is possible Monday, ending by Monday evening.

Wednesday's low brings clouds with sprinkles possible in the afternoon and evening.

The weekend system increases clouds Friday. Rain is possible by Friday night.

In between these lows (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday), expect quiet weather with temperatures at or slightly above seasonal averages.
