Extended Forecast:
Forecast models indicate a return to cooler conditions starting next Tuesday as a trough of low pressure drops down from the north to bring freezing levels down to about 4000 feet. The wildcard at this point is precipitation as the models continue light amounts of precipitation. Lower confidence in this extended forecast especially as it relates to precipitation
