Rain is falling over much of the area from a cold front pushing through the Northwest this morning. This rain will turn to showers following the front’s passing this morning and skies will stay mostly cloudy today. I wouldn’t be surprised if the sun breaks out later today and skies turn partly sunny, depending on how much sinking air comes behind this system.
Showers will be light and scattered into the afternoon, tapering off into this evening. Temperatures are running mild due to all the cloud cover, and a very mild day is anticipated as well. Of course this means snow levels will stay high for this event and that’s not forecasted to change throughout the week.
Tuesday looks to be a break in the wet weather before our next front pushes inland late Tuesday and Wednesday morning. This is going to bring snow levels above 7,000′ before dropping Wednesday night to 6,000.’ Unfortunately, snow pack for the higher elevations is not looking to promising this week.
Another storm is expected for the weekend and this again is going to keep snow levels high with a southerly wind. Afternoon highs for the lower elevations will be in the 50′s and 60′s throughout the week.
