Good evening everyone! Clouds are back to join us for the night and a few extra days. Rainfall totals have risen. Expect at least a quarter of an inch, but with the potential to see a soaking rain, we could see a good inch if not two in a few locations. Then things get interesting on Wednesday.
Rain will transition to snowfall Wednesday. Current model suggestion hints at an accumulating snowfall, but with the mass saturation and relatively warm temperatures Monday into Tuesday, snowfall may be limited. The highest mountain peaks will likely see the most snow. Crunching the numbers right now looks to be a light dusting up to an inch for most, but higher elevations could see 1-3 inches with a slick spot or two. This situation is likely to change. Stay tuned.
Cold and bitter for Thursday, but clouds build back Friday with another good chance of rain through the weekend.
Here is a look at your 7-day forecast:
Sunday night: A mostly cloudy sky with lows in the mid to upper 30’s with a few low 40’s. Winds will be out of the south at 5-10 mph.
