A ridge of high pressure continues to dominate over the western US. Today will see high temperatures a couple degrees warmer then yesterday. We still have strong valley inversions with lows near or below zero, while higher elevations between 11 and 12,000ft low temperatures where in the 25-28 degree range this morning. The ridge of high pressure will flatten slightly this weekend as a shortwave trough passes to our north. The northern mountains are expected to get some snow but it’s looking like we’re too far south. We have some chance of seeing a few flakes around the Sunday time frame as a shortwave digs a bit further south. The Ridge of high pressure then reestablishes heading into next week.
