Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Thursday, Jan 19 @ 08:25am **WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING **
The first storm system in our series continues it's progression through the area this morning, but will slowly pass east of the area. Partly to mostly cloudy skies, breezy and cold out there today with snow showers likely through this morning, tapering off by afternoon; highs in the 30's with the snow level around 5,000 feet, around 4-8" still expected. Expect a wintry finish to the week with snow, heavy at times again tomorrow as 2nd and stronger storm rolls in, temperatures still in the 30's with the snow level closer to 4,000 feet. This will be a slower moving system with colder air and the potential for 8-18 inches of snow through Saturday morning; travel's not recommended! Snow showers may decrease some over the weekend but not entirely end as residual moisture and a strong onshore flow keeps things somewhat cold and unsettled; total snowfall accumulations of 1-2 feet are possible now through the weekend. We're not out of the woods yet, as our 3rd and final storm of this series hits us sometime Sunday and could be the strongest in the series with more locally heavy snowfall forecast into Monday, before finally coming to an end Tuesday. Additional accumulations of 1-2 feet are possible early next week; bringing everyone's totals up to at least 1-3 feet with even more possible, especially at or above 7,000 feet! The jet stream lifts back to the north by the midweek, at least temporarily, giving us a chance to dig out! If traveling to the mountains over the next week, be extremely be prepared for harsh winter driving; carry extra food, water & warm clothing in the event you become stranded and always carry tire chains, as weather conditions will change rapidly.
