Still looking at sunny skies today and most of tomorrow, with comfortable temperatures. Now Saturday night into Sunday a system will pass through Washington, Oregon and Idaho, with a weak extension dropping down a far as Yosemite. So a slight chance of showers in Mono County. Ridging rebounds Monday into Tuesday, before a stronger system flattens the ridge and enters the West Coast Tuesday night into Wednesday with lingering showers Thursday. Here we have a better chance of rain /snow across the district.
So, here’s a question for you. Are you interested in the weather? Then this is for you!
