A wet week ahead, but first, some mild temperatures.

No snow

Coyote loop trail is almost snow-less on the south facing trails now, thanks to temperatures in the 60’s and lots of sunshine over the past couple of days. If you decide to try and hike it, wear your mud boots because it is very swampy!

3-26-22 10:30am update…

The low this morning at Stevens Field was 30 degrees and the high yesterday was 61. There was no precipitation recorded for our area.

It’s amazing how quickly what snow that was on the ground earlier this week is quickly going “poof” as our temperatures have warmed to over 60 degrees and the sun angle continues to rise higher into the sky. Look for continued warmer than average temperatures through Monday as high pressure slowly moves to our east. By Monday afternoon, a trough off the west coast will send out its first wave towards us along with a SW flow in the mid-levels of the atmosphere. This will be the set-up for decent precipitation on Monday night-Wednesday morning. With snow levels rising, I think most of us in the valley will see spring rains instead of snow, but there will be times at night and in the morning where a snow-rain combo will be possible. There will also be a possibility of some thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday. The good news is that a second system will moving in for Thursday and Friday with the chance for us seeing at least the same rain-snow totals as the first system…combined, we could see over an inch of precipitation over the next week.

Shawn takes over tomorrow…have a great weekend.
