Improving Skies; Warming Temps

Overcast skies begin to break up today. It will be a gradual process, but sunshine will be breaking through this afternoon, promoting warmer temperatures. After today, it’s smooth-sailing with a protracted warm and dry period that will extend through next week. We’re expecting an extended period with daily temperatures averaging about 5-degrees above normal.

Forecast Discussion

A sea of low cloudiness, promoted by wedging high pressure, has been in place over the Foothills since Tuesday afternoon. Today, drier air is eroding this wedge, and will promote gradual clearing this afternoon. With the appearance of the sun, expect a pleasant boost to temperatures today.

The weather regime over the contiguous U.S. will be dominated by an “Omega Block” during the next week: This features deep and vertically-stacked low-pressure centers, one over the West and another off the East Coast, with sprawling high pressure in the middle.

We will be situated under the High Pressure portion of this block, promoting some fabulous weather over the coming week. Expect abundant sunshine for multiple days, along with warm temperatures to herald the month of October.
