Chilly December Weekend

Justin’s Weekend Forecast Discussion: 

A few isolated showers also may creep in overnight tonight with some light snow showers in the mountains. Most of the heavy snow is tapering off and will continue to do so into early Saturday. Expect lows to dip into the low 40s and upper 30s.

The weekend looks to dry out a bit, even though we’ll carry a small chance for a passing shower- what you’re really notice is the chilly air that’ll make it hard to get highs out of the mid 40s. While a high pressure ridge is building in Pacific, its far enough away from the coast that little storm systems are riding over top and spilling into the Northwest.  None are very strong so any chance of showers or snow will be slight at best for both Saturday and Sunday.

Next week starts off dry for Monday, but more showers are back by late Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. We won’t see much of a warm up, maybe back into the low 50s for Monday and Tuesday, but another shot of cold air is coming midweek. Right now it won’t be here by the time the rain arrives (which would help our chances for valley snow) so I’ll call for more foothill snow with scattered cold rain in the valleys.

Have a great Friday!
