Nowcast- It's crisp this morning as clear skies allowed overnight temperatures to uniformly dip into the single digits from the ridges to the trailheads. Winds are remarkably light, blowing just 5-10 mph even near the high peaks. Lower elevation solars took on a taste of strong spring sun late in the day and they'll have a crust this morning, but swing around to wind sheltered polars and you'll be rewarded with cold, creamy snow.
Forecast- Another sunny, yet cool day is on tap. High temperatures rise into the low 30's while east and northeast winds remain well-behaved, blowing in the teens near the high ridges. About the same weather for Saturday with a weak system slated to round out the weekend.
Futurecast- Long duration storminess is expected next week, with the potential for yet another AR.... yes! This storm trends colder than this last one and I'll keep ya update as deets unfold.
Our friends at the NWS provide a glance into our upcoming weather in the image above.
