Forecast Update: Staying blustery with west slope snow showers for a little while longer...
We have seen numerous snow squalls over the last couple of days, and while the higher elevations and the western facing slopes may continue to see some snow showers here over the next couple of days, the coverage area should be a bit smaller. And it was no doubt pretty breezy and chilly too. But…temperatures will increase here later this week. Not 60s or 70s or anything like that, but we’ll be moving in the right direction for at least a little while.
Tonight: Variably cloudy with a few west slope snow showers possible…blustery with lows in the lower 30s.
Tuesday: More clouds west and more sun east with a few more snow and/or rain showers possible in the higher elevations…breezy with highs in the upper 40s.
Wednesday will be similar to Tuesday in that we will continue to see the chance for west slope snow showers. And once again we will see a mix of sun (east) and clouds (west) alongside blustery conditions. Temperatures on Hump Day will reach the middle 40s. We will climb to near 50 on Thursday and Friday. We’ll be watching a storm system (a cold front) to the south on Thursday, but most of the moisture looks to stay to the south of us. That, however, does not mean ALL the precipitation will stay south. A few rain and/or snow showers will be possible, with the best chance to see some snowflakes lying in the mountains Thursday morning. Thursday will be partly to mostly cloudy, while we should see more sun than clouds on Friday. Friday looks dry everywhere!
The weekend will get off to a mostly sunny start on Saturday, although we will turn cooler with highs falling into the low-to-mid 40s. We will see more clouds on Sunday with temperatures topping out in the mid-to-upper 40s. For now, Sunday looks to begin dry, but a few showers may form later in the day. That will lead to a wetter day next Monday. Right now, it looks to mainly, if not all, rain as temperatures look to stay well into the 40s. We’ll watch all these system closely over the next week.
