Sunday Evening Forecast…Fine until a Fine Line, Midweek

All quiet on the western front for another 24 hours. Monday seems warm, but not quite as warm as Sunday. But as high pressure moves across, it’s own circulation will turn our winds southerly, and encourages some lightweight moisture to be drawn up from Mexico and New Mexico.

A Tropical Storm off the coast of Puerto Vallarta will move into Mexico’s high country, and that pushes the southern moisture, north, too. But, there really isn’t a lot of moisture to rain out of those clouds, so for many, it may wind up being little more than on and off sprinkles later Tuesday…into Wednesday morning. It’ll be a fine line, between rain…or just sprinkles.

After that, it’s back to this spectacular weather again.

PS: One last chance to spot a meteor, tonight…
