Spotty Showers, Then Partly Cloudy

A cold front is currently pushing from northwest to southeast across the viewing area. Behind it, some cooler air will then move in and snow levels will drop rather quickly overnight to about 6,000′ but at this point most of the moisture will have moved on to the East. For this reason, snow showers are not of much concern and any higher terrain that continues to see an isolated shower overnight will see very little to no accumulation. Winds have picked up a bit as well, particularly for the East Side, and as the front continues eastward winds will slowly die down from West to East.

It’s possible a very spotty shower remains through tomorrow morning but by midday a drying trend will take over for the remainder of the week. Temperatures inland will also warm Thursday, and then warm further into Friday with decreasing clouds as the week comes to an end.

All of the weather models are indicating a weather disturbance moving in from our north and west over the weekend. The timing however, differs some among them. With the Pear Blossom Parade & Festival this weekend it would be nice if the system could hold off as long as possible. One of the American models is indicating a later arrival, more in the way of Sunday, while the other brings in spotty showers Saturday and lingers them into Sunday. As the weekend nears we can examine this further and hope for the best.

Thanks for logging on!
