A Much Better Sunday
After a chilly Saturday, conditions improve considerably for Sunday with a 15 degree temperature rebound, less wind and clear blue skies. There will be areas of frost early in the day, however. Temperatures spike on Monday ahead of a dry cold front, then cool off a bit behind the front. By Thursday a rapidly moving storm system of Pacific origin may bring some rainfall to the region.

Sunday’s weather will be much better than Saturday's with sunny skies for everyone and a 15 degree temperature rebound. That said, with lighter winds, sheltered valleys stand a good chance of experiencing a few hours of frost early in the day.
A dry cold front comes through on Monday. Downslope winds will lead to a temperature spike during the day, with cooler albeit sunny conditions to follow for Tuesday and Wednesday.
By Thursday a fast moving storm system of Pacific origin will approach from the west. It’s looking a little wetter than it did yesterday, and a chance of rain has been added to the forecast for parts of Thursday and Friday. There is still plenty of uncertainty on the strength and timing of the system, but I think we’d all agree that rain would be a good thing at this point.
