Weak high pressure at the surface will strengthen today into the weekend, this will be a dirty ridge allowing some high cloudiness into the region, along with an increase in temperatures. VAriable high cloudiness tonight with light winds as lows cool to the 20's. Mid and upper-level moisture will stream in off the Pacific Friday as a trough passes inland to our north with no precipitation expected across our area. Highs will top out around 50 degrees to finish off the week with winds turning southwesterly 5-15 mph during the afternoon. We'll clear things out over the weekend with highs in the lower 50's Saturday, cooling into the 40's on Sunday, while overnight lows remain in the 20's. Another storm will move inland across the Pacific Northwest this weekend brushing our area Sunday into Monday. This will bring another cool down as highs drop into the 30's Monday with moisture staying to our north. A stronger onshore flow will also generate gusty west winds to around 30 mph at times. Overall, expect temperatures to remain near to slightly below average through next week as our forecast remains high and dry, for now. If you have travel plans into the mountains during the winter months, always be prepared for hazardous driving as weather conditions can change rapidly, and always carry chains!
