...AFTERNOON/EARLY EVENING SHOWERS/T-STORMS MOST NUMEROUS MON/TUE...

.METEOROLOGICAL CONDITIONS (SUN AM - SAT AM)...

Still looking at high pressure offshore along 140W with another upr 
ridge across southern NM. In between...weak upr troffing is the 
story. Afternoon showers/t-storms over the Sierra crest today will 
become more numerous tomorrow and Tuesday with coverage increasing 
across the Shasta area along with northern/western NV. Conditions 
then dry out for the middle and end of the week as the upr ridge 
across southern AZ/NM builds westward and centers itself over the 
lower Colorado River basin near the CA/AZ border. This will result 
in temperatures increasing above normal by the upcoming weekend 
after bottoming out near normal mid-week.
