Woohoo, it’s Friday! I do hope everyone has enjoyed their week. Heading into the weekend we are watching a front move in, this will give the region a quick bout of snow and valley rain overnight. A bit of good news, road temperatures are rather warm, meaning accumulations on roads will be minimal, this should lessen the blow. That being said, your car, your lawn will likely see minor accumulations above 1,500′ in elevation. Isolated mountain tops could see close to 4-6″, at elevations above 2,000′. Great news for those who enjoy spring skiing! You can always get a full ski & ride report on our website, just click here.
Heading towards daybreak Saturday we are left with a few minor showers, followed by gradual clearing. Sunshine will become more abundant during the afternoon, and it will feel a lot like spring. High temperatures will reach the low and middle 50s. Our fairly quiet weather will continue into Sunday, though, don’t expect as much sunshine. Our next hit of rain will arrive just in time for the Monday morning commute. This will set us up for a soggy start to the work week. During this time we will have had warm temperatures allowing for snowmelt, then half an inch to an inch of new precip during Monday. During this time we will have to watch for the threat of flooding.
Much of next week is quiet with a few weak front passing, allowing for more clouds than sunshine, and the occasional rain shower. Temperatures will start slightly above normal in the low 50s and then fall to the middle 40s, which is below normal.
Tonight: Clouds, valley rain, and mountain snow. Areas above 1,500′ will see minor accumulation on roadways, with 1-3″ on cars, grassy surfaces. Overnight lows, low to middle 30s. Wind: South 10-15mph.
Saturday: Isolated morning showers followed by gradual clearing. More sun during the afternoon hours, and warm. Afternoon high, low and middle 50s. Wind: Southwest to Northwest 5-10mph.

Sunday: Partly to mostly cloudy, but dry. Afternoon high, the middle 50s. Wind: North 3-5mph.
Monday: Cloudy, periods of rain, we will have to be on alert for flooding. Afternoon high, the upper 40s to low 50s. Wind: Southeast 5-10mph.
