DISCUSSION...

An upper level trough is over the Midwest with a cut off low over
the Pacific Ocean south of California. A cold front has moved
through the area resulting in temperatures that are a little cooler
than yesterday but still near normal. A surface trough will develop
across the area on Monday with westerly winds. This will allow for
temperatures to warm up into the 70s across most of the area. The
upper trough over the Midwest will move over the eastern conus on
Tuesday with another trough moving over the west coast. Southerly
winds will be across the CWA resulting in temperatures similar to
the previous day.

The upper trough over the west coast will combine with the cut off
low. Lift from this upper system will begin to impact the area
Tuesday night resulting in increasing chances of rain. Showers and
possible isolated thunderstorms will continue across the area on
Wednesday with temperatures decreasing a little. Expect
precipitation amounts to be light. A cold front associated with a
trough over the Upper Midwest will begin moving into the CWA on
Thursday resulting in high temperatures cooling into the 60s across
the northern portion of the area. Chances of rain will remain across
the area Thursday as the upper trough slowly approaches from the
west. The upper trough to the west begins to move over the region on
Friday with temperatures further cooling across the area.
Precipitation chances will also remain across the area on Friday but
will come to an end on Saturday as the upper trough moves to the
east of the region. Temperatures are expected to gradually warm up
next weekend but will still be below normal.
