Looking forward to a very nice weekend under weak ridging, which should allow temperatures recover nicely, even climb back above freezing for our first time in a week! Mostly clear skies through out there today with north-northeast winds 5-15mph and a high near 40-degrees. Fair and a tad warmer, though still below average (49/23) Sunday as temp's creep into the lower 40's, while overnight lows fall into the teens, possibly single digits in a few locations. Our next storm system will approach the area Monday, bringing an increase in clouds and winds throughout the day, highs will drop back in the 30's; we'll likely hold off on any precip most of the day. As this cold low drops in on us Monday night into Tuesday, expect gusty winds and snow showers; being another cold system we're looking at the snow level down around 3,000 feet once again. Preliminary estimates in the 4-8" ball-park at this time, with locally more possible, especially if we get into some convective showers or thunderstorms in the cold & unstable environment on Tuesday. We'll get another break between troughs Wednesday and Thursday, with our next system forecast to roll in later Thursday into Friday; jury's still out on details with this next round, currently some run to run inconsistencies with forecast models, but it does look cold and unsettled into early March. Not the feet and feet of snow for a March miracle, but a welcomed change; be sure to check back often for regular updates.
If planning travel into the mountains, always be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions and carry tire chains!
