|Average High||Record High / Year||Average Low||Record Low / Year|

Precipitation summary… A few spots got a few snowflakes yesterday but there was no measurable precip reported.
There is nothing significant on radar in our region this afternoon.
*** Cooler temps have resulted in another lull in run-off. ***
Today through Sunday… Drier and more stable upper level northwest flow will take over as the next ridge tries to build over the western US. Patches of mid and high clouds will occasionally move through, but we’ll see lots of sun. There is a slight chance for scattered mountain showers Sunday afternoon. Afternoon winds will be strongest today but remain gusty each afternoon.
Temps… Today highs will be in the mid-40s to low 50s and lows will be in the mid-teens to mid-20s. Friday Highs will be 50-60 and lows will be 20-30. Saturday and Sunday will be closer to average with highs in the mid-50s to mid-60s and lows in the mid-20s to mid-30s.
Winds… This afternoon winds will gust 25-35mph. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons peaks will be in the 15-25mph range.
Monday and Tuesday… A system will develop to our northwest and move southeast into our area. It won’t have much moisture or storm energy, but we’ll see more clouds, scattered showers, and a chance for an isolated thunderstorm or two.
Temps… Highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the high 20s to high 30s.
Winds… Afternoon gusts will be in the 15-25mph range.
Valley below 9,000ft: a few snowflakes – lucky folks above 8,400ft could get up to a half inch
Mountains above 9,000ft: 3-6”
The pattern will get more active starting Monday, but I don’t see any big storms on the horizon. We’ll catch the tail end of systems as they scoot by to our north. It’s wind season, so most afternoons winds will gust into the 15-25mph range.
My next post will be on Saturday.
