Its never a good sign for winter weather in the near future when weather discussions are talking about the fire conditions. Dry and warm as far as the eye can see could be the end of this weather discussion. Well, ok a few more points can be made. Cloud cover is decreasing this morning as we are back in warm and dry southwest flow. The pressure gradients will tighten tomorrow and we’ll see an uptick in gusty alpine winds with hight temperatures a couple degrees warmer then today. Winds looks to ease again by the weekend with high temperatures dropping a couple degrees. It all comes back to warm and dry weather into the extended forecast with a few blips of increased clouds maybe this weekend or next week.
