Sunshine returns this weekend as that stubborn cloud cover moves off from the valley.
Afternoon highs will remain in the low to mid 60s and overnight lows will turn colder by Sunday and into next week.
By late next week we'll drop into the mid and upper 50s for afternoon highs as skies turn cloudy with a 20% chance for rain.
In the long term, the time period starting Dec. 19th through the 23rd looks wet with lower snow levels than 8,000 feet.
We'll wait and see if that trend holds together....
