The warmth continues as we start off this new work week. Afternoon highs will top the thermometer in the lower 70's to lower 80's. Winds will be up at 5-10mph. Scattered showers will develop across the higher terrain this afternoon but the majority of the Western Slope will stay dry and sunny today. Our next storm system will push into the Great Basin by Tuesday afternoon, however, showers and thunderstorms will be likely during our Tuesday prior to the cold front passing.
After the passage of the cold front Wednesday morning temperatures will be below average going into Wednesday afternoon. We will be on another warming trend late this week with 70's returning by Friday. A strong pacific trough will drop into the region this weekend which will produce showers and thunderstorms Saturday carrying over into Sunday. Temperatures will be cooling off into the 50's and 60's by next Sunday.
