Synopsis: It’s been a colder and mostly dry November across the County and we’ll see little deviation from that through the upcoming week. Looking at the big picture, a fast moving disturbance with an attendant weak cold front will move across the lower Great Basin later today before quickly exiting east into the Plains on Tuesday. Overcast skies and near normal temperatures (low 70s) are on tap today followed by a brief cool down (mid 60s) behind the front on Tuesday. Moving ahead, warmer temperatures and generally sunny skies will return through the end of the work week. Our next weather system will hold off until the upcoming weekend and as of now its looking like another moisture starved and breezy event similar to what we’ve seen the last few weeks.
For today plan on periods of overcast skies across the region. Afternoon temperatures will still warm into the 70˚F-72˚F range around the Valley. West/northwest winds will generally hover in the 5-10mph range with localized greater gusts around 15-20mph will be possible this evening. Overnight lows will dip into the upper to mid 40s around the urban corridor under clearing skies and easing breezes.
For tomorrow plan on a return to sunny skies across the region. Daytime temperatures will step back into the 64˚F-66˚F range around the Valley behind the cold front. Variable winds will generally hover in 3-8mph range with no gusts of any consequence throughout the day. Weak ridging will quickly redevelop across the Desert Southwest through mid-week lending to warmer temperatures and dry conditions. Daily highs will make a quick return to the low 70s through the period to go along with quiet weather conditions.
