Today we will be in between two different storm systems one that's exiting to the Midwest which moved through yesterday and a Northwest Pacific low heading this way. That puts us under the influence of high pressure today and tomorrow. Temperatures will warm up as a result with temperatures today near average and tomorrow above average. Winds will pick up again on Friday with gusts up to 35-40mph.
The weekend storm system still looks on track to move into the Great Basin Saturday morning allowing for some shower activity late Friday night. The bulk of the weekend rain arrives Saturday morning through Saturday evening. However, showers will be likely in the valleys up until mid-morning Sunday. Mountain showers are likely until Sunday evening. Temperatures will be cooling off through the weekend with 50's and 60's expected. By Monday, most areas will only be in the 50's. We warm back up into the 60's for Tuesday and Wednesday with a drier forecast on tap.
