Wednesday Wind

 

Thursday will be calm and dry, with highs in the low 70s, before the next big rainmaker makes its way across the two state area Friday-early monday morning. Temperatures will max out in the upper 60s Friday/Saturday, with highs in the low 60s possible Sunday.

Temp Trend

0.25″-1.00″ of total rainfall is possible over the weekend. Rain will be wonderful in helping this summer’s drought. This will possibly impact mountain pass travel with poor visibility during times of heavy rainfall. Watch for flash flooding concerns Saturday and Sunday along recent burn scars from wildfires. Conditions should dry by Monday afternoon. Fall begins next Wednesday September 22nd at 12:20PM PT.
