Get ready for a quiet stretch of weather over the next three days. A ridge of high pressure will slide over the state through Thursday. This will allow for less wind for the middle part of the workweek, as well as warming temperatures. Many areas will be near record highs Thursday afternoon.
Another storm system is expected to scrape through the Four Corners Friday. This will give the northern high terrain a shot at rain and snow above 10,000′. Most of the state will remain dry with gusty winds leading to critical fire weather concerns, especially south and east.
The passing storm system will pull temperatures back over the weekend, but a even deeper trough is expected to drop into the state by the middle of next week. That will pull temperatures back below average just ahead of Easter weekend.
