Precipitation summary… There has been no recent measurable precip.
Below are the links for Trail Springs fire, Mill Creek 2 fire, and Bear Creek. There has been more smoke from the Trail Springs fire due to low humidity in the afternoons. However, moisture increased last night and will stay high through the weekend so the fires should be less active.
*** Scattered showers Thursday morning. ***
*** Better chance for showers Saturday and Sunday. ***
Thursday and Friday… The ridge has moved to our east. Upper-level southwest flow has pushed more moisture into our area. We’ll see more clouds and scattered showers Thursday morning, 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.
Snow will be spotty and won’t amount to much: up to 1” in the mountains and a few flakes above 8,500ft in the valley.
Winds… Afternoon peaks will be in the 15-20mph range.

Saturday, Sunday, Monday morning… The low-pressure system off the California coast will finally move east over the weekend. Unfortunately it will weaken as it moves through our area.
Snow levels will hover around 9,000ft on Saturday and then around 8,000ft most of Sunday. The snow level will drop to 7,000ft through Sunday evening, but moisture will be decreasing.
