Our next front arrives tomorrow morning, but most of the moisture will stay east of us.

Forecast discussion…

A nice day ahead with mostly sunny skies and relatively light winds. A cold front moves through tonight, but looking at the latest forecasts and model data, will generally arrive dry. We may see a few flurries overnight and tomorrow morning, but as of this post, the moisture from this system will stay to the east and NE of us. High pressure moves in for the weekend and we could see our first 70-degree temperatures as early as Sunday. That could prompt some upper-elevation snow melt, so we will need to keep an eye on nearby river flows.
