It’s been a dismal start to the week for the country east of the Rockies, but in the mountains and points westward, life is a little bit better. Let’s go to northern Arizona.
At 957PM, Flagstaff is reporting a temperature of 50 degrees with clear skies. A ridge of high pressure is moving further inland, likely tamping down any clouds overnight.
Surface high pressure will get stronger as the upper level ridge becomes more firmly entrenched over the western US. This may set up a bit of a Santa Ana situation over Southern California, and contribute to a bit of a warm up in Flagstaff.

I’m inclined to believe that FIO doesn’t know the elevation of Flagstaff. Here is a look at the western US satellite imagery. There really isn’t anything going on for most of the SW.
