Temps… Highs will be in the mid-50s to low 60s and lows will be in the low 20s to low 30s.
Thursday and Friday… The ridge will be to our east and upper-level southwest flow will push more moisture into our area. We’ll see more clouds and a few scattered showers on Thursday, mostly over the mountains. Most of Friday will be dry and then a few spotty showers will develop over the mountains late Friday night.
Snow levels on Thursday will be around 9,500ft and then bounce between 9,000ft and 9,500ft on Friday.
