Ridging will keep us dry and mostly sunny through Saturday. The only clouds I spotted this morning were over the mountains northwest of town.
Sunday through Friday will be unsettled as a couple of systems move through the region. They’ll be disorganized, lack moisture, and their track won’t favor us. It looks like an extended period of variable clouds and occasional light precip that won’t add up to much. However, with an active pattern, there’s always the possibility that Mother Nature could bring us a surprise!
Today through Saturday… Expect dry weather and lots of sun. Highs will be in the lower to upper 50s and lows in the upper-teens to mid-20s. Winds will be gusty tomorrow afternoon. Expect peak winds around 30mph. Have that sunscreen handy!
Saturday at midnight through Monday at midnight… The first system will move through the region. Expect mostly cloudy skies and occasional precip. The snow level will bounce around during the day between 7,000ft and 8,000ft resulting in a sloppy precip mix. Temps during the day will warm into the 40s and dip into the 20s overnight.
– 0.10 to 0.25” liquid equivalent in the valley and 0-1” of snow
– 3 to 6” of snow above 9,000ft
Tuesday through Friday… The pattern will stay active with periods of cloudy skies and occasional precip. The details are still in doubt. High temps will be around 5 degrees below average while lows will be around 5 degrees above average.
