Rain showers are developing ahead of a weak trough this evening, and this trough will slowly dig southward across the Great Basin in the Desert Southwest over the next few days. This moisture is welcome, but will be short-lived. The streak of mild and dry weather we have been enjoying since September will continue into early November. A stubborn ridge of warm high pressure will remain near the Colorado Front Range for the first week of November forcing the storm track well north of the Central Rockies and keeping most of the really cold air in Central Canada. Over the next few days, an area of low pressure will track slowly over Arizona and western New Mexico, but moisture associated with this system should stay well south of Nederland.
