Precipitation summary… Wolf Creek ended up with 12”. Most of us got less than an inch in the valley.
There is nothing on radar in our area this afternoon.
Rest of Today… A few light snowshowers are hanging on over the mountains. They’ll slowly diminish through the evening and clouds will clear out overnight.
Patchy fog will form in low-lying areas tonight.
Lows tonight will range from -10 to +10.
Wednesday through Sunday… Ridging will take over and give us lots of sun and dry weather. We’ll see a gradual warming trend with temps near average by Thursday.
Wednesday high temps will range from the low to high 30s and lows will range from -5 to 15.
Thursday through Sunday highs will range from the high 30s to mid-40s and lows will range from 0 to 20.
Winds will peak around 10mph each afternoon out of the southwest.
Sunday night through Monday… I’m tracking our next potential weather system. Right now it looks pretty weak, but there’s plenty of time for that to change.
We have determined that the 5-day forecast graphic is taking too much of our time and doesn’t add much value. We’ll include temps and significant winds in the forecast discussion above.
My next post will be on Thursday. I plan to get the January summary and February outlook posted tomorrow morning.
