TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST
..Just another beautiful morning here in the Mountains. Cool morning air, a light breeze, and clear skies.
..Yesterday there was another Brush Fire pretty much in the same place as the Manzanita Fire a week or so ago. This time the Fire burned around 3-5 acres. Air resources along with ground crews made quick work of the fire and is now out. A big Thank You to our Firefighters.
..Today will be the coolest day of the next five as a trough moves through the Region from the North. Low clouds and Fog are in the Valley again this morning, but will clear out quickly. There is no Fog along any of the Rim this morning.
..So for today, we will see daytime high temperatures running around the low to mid 70s. Gusty winds can be expected this afternoon, along with a few clouds as well.
..For the Work Week Weather: An area of High pressure that is currently building over the Northwestern parts of Mexico, will fill in behind the departing Trough starting Monday. This will bring a slow warming trend to the area for Tuesday through Friday, as the Ridge of High pressure migrates West.
..Temperatures will not, be hot as we have seen in the past weeks just around normal, to a few degrees above that. Thursday, an area of Low pressure will start to move North from Baja Ca. This will bring a slight chance for T/Storms to the area next Friday and Saturday as Tropical Moisture is drawn into the area from the South.
..Then as that system moves out Sunday, another Trough from the North will follow continuing to give us a chance for scattered showers through Tuesday of the next week.
..That system will likely bring a NE winds as it departs to the East for our area for Tuesday and Wednesday for the 11th and 12th.
..This is typical for this time of year. As areas of Low pressure begin to pass through the PAC-NW, we will see onshore flow, clouds at times, and also NE winds following those systems, as they move East through the Great Basin.
..So far this year, we have not seen any critical fire danger levels due to the lack of significant winds. Lets hope it stays this way. The rains we had a couple weeks ago have really helped, but the light fuels have dried out now and are very dry as of this morning. So please continue to be careful with any type of fire. RC*
