An east wind dominates our weather pattern for this afternoon, keeping us on the cloudy and cool side today. There will also be area of light rain and/or drizzle. We often call this "the wedge." That when that easterly flow gets dammed up by the mountains (cool air damming) and sends us cooler air and some moisture, too.
The isolated showers or drizzle could happen at any time today, but for the most part, we will just have mostly cloudy skies. Temps will be cooler thanks to the wedge. Highs today will only reach the upper 70s.
The models often have a hard time with the wedge. Especially targeting a time when it will erode. We think the clouds will slowly start breaking up later in the day Thursday. Look for partly sunny skies by late afternoon.
We expect dry weather Friday and through the weekend. Temperatures will also be cooler than average Wednesday and Thursday, then moving back up to the lower 80s for the weekend and into next week.
