Precipitation summary… Light snow started falling across parts of the county in the early morning hours. The heaviest snow was pretty much done by sunrise. Wolf Creek reported 2” this morning and might have squeezed out another inch or two during the day.
Rest of today… We’ll stay mostly cloudy and light snowshowers will linger over the mountains. Up to an inch of snow is possible in the mountains.
Tuesday and Wednesday… A couple of weak disturbances will move through the upper level northwesterly and northerly flow and could kick up a few mountain snowflakes. Lucky spots in the mountains could get an inch or two of snow and parts of the valley could get a dusting.
Thursday through Saturday… Ridging and drier air will give us lots of sun. Temps will warm to near average Friday and Saturday.
Sunday through?… The pattern will get more active. The forecast models are all over the place, so forecast confidence is low in the details. Right now it looks like we could have another extended period of snow, but amounts aren’t too impressive.
My next post will be on Wednesday.
