A ridge of high pressure to our SE and a trough to our NW seems to be the order of the day. With this, mostly clear skies and seasonal temperatures will prevail. Some monsoonal moisture will try to push its way into our area later Friday and Saturday. So a slight possibility a few mountain clouds on Friday & Saturday with a shower here and there. By Monday, as that NW trough continues to push through Washington State, we will pick up some breezes and our temps will drop a few degrees into mid week. So, an on-going stable weather pattern is on tap.
