- Detailed Info
The next storm system is forecast to reach the northern mountains late Monday afternoon or Monday evening. Ahead of the front, the southwest flow will continue. Winds speeds will increase slightly today and tonight, but hourly averages across the high ridgelines should remain below 30 mph. Cloud cover will also increase – high thin clouds this morning, with some mid-level clouds by late afternoon. The southwesterly winds will increase tomorrow by mid-day, ahead of the front. 10,000’ overnight temperatures will cool slightly form today’s highs, back down to near freezing.
The Monday night/Tuesday event looks to be a small, quick hitter. 4 to 8” might be a more realistic storm total, unless a good wrap around flow develops on Tuesday. Even then, only a few favored areas would get higher snow amounts. Temperatures will drop nicely behind the front, into the mid-teens at 10,000’, and remain cool through Wednesday. Dry conditions, with a gradual warming trend into the weekend.
