Faux Spring Continues

There will still be plenty of clouds around today and Friday, but ample breaks will exist to make it feel more like spring than late winter. While it will remain generally dry today and Friday, there could be a couple showers early Saturday. The mild weather will go on a brief hiatus for the second half of the weekend. After those early Saturday showers, skies will turn generally clear through Sunday.

Forecast Discussion

Weak high pressure will be in control of our weather today and Friday, but there’s still plenty of low-level moisture trapped to promote lots of low clouds. Expect partial afternoon sunshine, however, and those breaks will boost afternoon temperatures.

A cold front is scheduled to push through the Foothills Saturday morning. We expect a few showers with the front, but it won’t amount to much. Skies clear for Saturday afternoon and it will remain mild.

Colder air lags the front a ways, but it will make its presence felt for Saturday night. Sunday will be sunny but seasonable. We warm right back up early next week.

A warm front lifting northward through the area on Tuesday might provide our next opportunity for some needed rainfall starting Monday afternoon. A cold front coming through Wednesday night will keep shower chances alive through midweek.
