High pressure will continue to dominate the weather through the middle of the following week, ensuring dry and seasonable conditions.
Temperatures are forecast to be cold throughout the day, with lows around freezing expected throughout the night.
This morning's skies are mostly clear in northern and central Nevada, with a few scattered clouds. The ridge of high pressure that has delivered us such pleasant weather has now moved to the east of the country.
Even though a minor impulse in the flow is likely to sweep over the area today, it is only expected to bring some clouds and no precipitation.
There will be little wind. The high temperatures in the afternoon will be in the 30s and 40s. As for tonight, a small wave will pass above and to the east, providing an opportunity for ridging to form once again.
A sliver of precipitation is expected in the afternoon, and nighttime lows will range from the teens to the twenties. From now through Tuesday, high pressure will continue to develop over the southern United States and Mexico.
The outcome will be calm and pleasant weather, with breezes that will be on the mild side. Warmer weather will arrive on Tuesday, with high temperatures in the 30s and 40s and nighttime lows in the teens and 20s.
Generally speaking, the long-term trend of the synoptic pattern seems to be progressive. Because of a lack of model agreement, confidence in the pattern is low, making it difficult to pinpoint the repercussions of the pattern.
