Precipitation summary… There has been no precip reported recently.
The Trail Springs fire, Mill Creek 2 fire, and Bear Creek fire have been a little more active due to warmer temps, low humidity, and gusty afternoon winds.
*** A cold front will move through late Wednesday afternoon. Expect spotty snow showers Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon. ***
Wednesday and Thursday… The cold front will move through our area late Wednesday afternoon. The temperature will drop 10-15 degrees behind the front Wednesday evening. More clouds and scattered showers will also move in Wednesday night through Thursday afternoon, mostly over the mountains. Unfortunately there won’t be much moisture and precip.

Winds… Wednesday afternoon gusts will be in the 20-25mph range. Thursday peak winds will be around 15mph.
Temps… Lows tonight will be in the mid-20s to mid-30s. Highs on Wednesday will be in the high 40s to mid-50s and lows Wednesday night will be in the high teens to high 20s. Thursday highs will be in the mid-40s to low 50s and lows will be in the mid-teens to mid-20s.
Friday through Tuesday… Initially ridging will build over the region and then the flow will become more zonal (west to east). This means no interesting storms are expected during this period. The cloudiest days will be Friday and Tuesday, but we’ll see lots of sun during this period. We’ll stay dry.
Winds… Each afternoon through Monday, peak winds will be around 15mph. Winds will increase a bit to around 20mph Tuesday afternoon.
Temps… Friday highs will be in the mid-40s to mid-50s and lows will be in the high teens to mid-20s. Saturday highs will be in the high 40s to high 50s and lows will be in the high teens to high 20s. Sunday through Tuesday highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the low 20s to low 30s.
The next system?… The pattern wants to get more active the second half of next week. I’m keeping my excitement in check because of our recent track record, but we’re due!
Unless tomorrow’s cold front surprises me, my next post will be on Thursday.
