Through the day today a disturbance will bring light showers, mainly this afternoon and overnight, with snow levels climbing to up to 3,000 feet today before dropping again to 1,500 feet at times by tomorrow morning. This means we could see some low level snow flurries by tomorrow morning, but we’re not expecting much accumulation with any of the showers. Light showers will continue tomorrow, but a a strong winter storm system will be the one to watch later this week.
Late Friday into Saturday we’ll see heavy rain, snow and strong winds. This system has the potential to be a significant winter storm, creating blizzard-like conditions at times and hazardous road conditions. The bulk of the storm will hit overnight Friday which means low elevations could be waking up to snow Saturday morning. Be prepared to run into hazardous winter travel across the region but especially over the passes. Check road conditions before heading out, carry chains and extra supplies; find out more on what to travel with on the weather homepage.
I’ll be updating my Facebook with more weather and reports. Thanks for logging on and travel safe!
