Today will feature brighter and breezier weather as Canadian high pressure builds into the region behind yesterday’s cold front. Some upslope clouds and showers are noted in observational data coming out of the mountains this morning, but these will likely remain confined to the higher terrain and perhaps adjacent parts of the foothills. Both the clouds and the showers will diminish in coverage and intensity later this afternoon. High temps in the mountains will range from 40 to 45.
Farther south, it’s all systems go for sunshine as NW flow downslopes off the mountains. That downsloping will also contribute to warmer temperatures in the mid 50’s. The NW flow will keep any sea breezes at bay, so the coast will be just as warm as spots just inland.
