A large-scale ridge of high pressure aloft will dominate the weather pattern for at least a week. Therefore, expect mostly sunny skies and gradual warming, although overnight lows will remain below freezing. A shortwave trough embedded within the ridge will move across the Great Basin on Thursday – Friday, flattening the ridge temporarily and bringing breezy conditions on Thursday, partly cloudy skies Thursday – Friday, and slight cooling of about 5 degrees by Friday.
Otherwise, the weather will be mostly sunny and dry the rest of the week, with high temperatures above normal. No precipitation is expected this week.
