Come join us on Friday for an evening with Climate and Weather Experts at 6pm at the CSU Extension Building at 344 HWY 84. Arleen will be there along with Peter Goble-Climatologist and Water Availability Specialist.
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.
The rest of the day: Partly cloudy with highs in the low 60’s. SW winds 10-15mph with gusts to 25mph.
Friday: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20’s to low 30’s and highs in the low to mid 50’s. NE winds 15-25mph with gusts to 35mph. A tiny chance for snow showers in the morning.
