Good Sunday evening, folks. What can I say? We’ve been stuck in this cloudy and rainy rut since we started the Thanksgiving weekend. That has kept us from warming up again today with highs only in the upper 30s to lower 40s. There is good news, though, if you’re not a fan of all this rain. We just need to get past the rain chances tonight and Monday, and then we’ll FINALLY get the chance to start drying out. Rain will continue to develop and work through on the radar below for tonight and into Monday morning…
We’re finally seeing some real progress on our changing weather setup. The upper low that hasn’t budged from the western U.S. for a while is now working through Wyoming tonight…
As that continues to push east, that will allow the stubborn system to our south (along with the moisture stuck behind the front to start working out of here. Once we get the back edge of the system, the developing cold front out in New Mexico and Arizona, to sweep through Monday, that will push the rain chances and the cloud cover out of here…
Rain chances continue tonight and into Monday morning. Temperatures hold steady near 40° under otherwise cloudy skies with drizzle and patchy fog possible…
The front races in and starts sweeping though Monday afternoon. Before the front clears out, I expect highs to top out near 47° with some rain chances still around…
Going into Monday night and Tuesday morning, the rain is out and we’ll slowly see the cloud cover break apart. As that happens with a light southwest breeze at 5-10 mph, I can’t rule out some possible patchy fog just because of the rain that we’ve accumulated since last Thursday. Otherwise, we go into Tuesday morning cold with lows near 31°…
Tuesday is still cool but we trend warmer and we’ll FINALLY see the sunshine return! I’m expecting partly to mostly sunny skies on Tuesday with highs topping out in the upper 40s to near 50°…
We stay dry Wednesday through this coming Saturday. Temperatures stay cool through Thursday with morning lows dropping into the upper 20s and lower 30s. By next Sunday, we’re sticking with Doug’s pattern and we’ll watch for another system to bring rain chances back into the picture by then. For the latest on the long range forecast and the pattern, Doug has you covered on headypattern.com
Have a good night and a great Monday!

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)
SLIGHT CHANCES: MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS.
IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT: THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES
A chilly start to the week with rain and snow chances to start the week. Mild temperatures will return for the second half of the week with rain chances returning for the weekend.
Mild with rain chances to start the week. As colder air works in we could see rain or snow by the middle of the week. Cool temperatures for the second half of the week with a second system and rain or snow chances by the weekend.
Most of the week will be on the cold side with slight chances for snow on Sunday. Better chances for snow will work in with a storm system on Tuesday and Wednesday. Staying cool but dry for the holiday.
When I say hot: 90+
When I say warm: 75-89
When I say mild: 60-74
