A trough and low pressure to our west will be impacting our weather over the next two days.

A trough to our west and a low pressure moving our direction over the next couple of days will keep our skies mostly cloudy, continue our red flag warnings with wind gust approaching or exceeding 30mph and give us a chance for a combination of snow-rain showers tonight through Friday. Unfortunately, this is another one of those moisture starved systems that have been way too common this season. Best odds for precipitation will be tomorrow night and Friday, but as you can see from the latest NWS precipitation forecast graphics, there won’t be much. There could be some scattered thunderstorms on Friday afternoon as the low which will transform into a wave moves through.

Latest precipitation forecast from the NWS for the next 3 days.

High temperatures will remain slightly below normal (50’s) and lows will stay close to normal through Friday (20’s). As promised, this weekend looks sunny and warmer with the potential for our first 70 degree reading by Sunday.

My Forecast: If you find 0.20 of precipitation through Friday consider yourself lucky with this system. I think most of the valley and near mountain areas will see only 0.05-0.10 of precipitation and some possible snow showers at night and during the mornings. The mountains could see 1-3 inches of snow.
