Clouds, sprinkles move out… the sun moves in

A weak disturbance is passing just southwest of the area:

And it has been producing light showers–mainly to our west.  But some of our counties have had a passing sprinkle or light shower–even a little mixed precip is showing up on Live Doppler 2HD.  As this disturbance moves away during the afternoon, the clouds will break up a bit and we’re back to SUNSHINE!  And once the sun comes out, it is here to stay… for a few days!  As mentioned yesterday, high pressure at the surface brings this clearing:

And a pattern-shift will occur over the next couple of days, too.  We are still in a trough and this has been keeping us cool:

But by Friday and the weekend, a ridge will build in:

That brings a big warm-up.  Still on track for upper 50s on Friday and 60s for the weekend.  Otherwise, things will be pretty quiet around these parts.  The next chance of rain will be with a stronger front on Monday–we could even hear some rumbles of thunder with this feature.  And it will be followed by another drop in temperature!
