METEOROLOGIST MELISSA FREY’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
A large ridge of high pressure is developing off shore. This has sent the jet stream north and will block other storms from moving into our area. We’ll be left with mostly sunny skies, dry weather and mild temperatures. Highs should make it to the low 50s.
The ridge will break down and the jet stream will head south Tuesday. This will bring in a cold front Tuesday afternoon. Showers will start mid day and continue for about 24 hours. The freezing level will fall to about 2,500 feet Tuesday night, allowing 2-4 inches of snow to fall near the passes, with about an inch in the higher foothills.
We’ll get a break from the rain Wednesday night and Thursday, but it will get very cold. Highs will only make it to the low 40s with lows in the low to mid 30s.
Have a great Monday!
