A ridge of high pressure will bring warmer-than-normal temperatures Monday – Wednesday. However, two back-to-back troughs will move through the Southwest later this week. The first trough will bring increasing clouds and breezes on Wednesday, with windy, cooler, and showery weather on Thursday – Friday. Another colder trough will move through over the weekend, with a slight chance of rain changing to snow showers Saturday to Sunday. There is considerable uncertainty in the weekend forecast, but it does appear that we could have some light snow accumulation on Sunday afternoon – evening. Total liquid water equivalent precipitation this week will be about 0.3 – 0.5”.
Watch local forecasts for more details as the weekend approaches.

Early next week, the weather will likely be cooler than normal.
