CHIEF METEOROLOGIST JUSTIN STAPLETON’S FORECAST DISCUSSION:
Mild overnight and mostly clear (until the low clouds fill back into the valley) with lows in the upper 40s. Enjoy the mild, warm weather while you can- there’s some changes coming in about 24 hours. Back to a more typical showery pattern.
The ridge of high pressure is on the move but will hold the rain off for one more day. With the warm air in place, highs on Wednesday will likely push back close to 70 and we’ll see mostly sunny skies early with more clouds moving in by late afternoon and evening.
Thursday brings in the first of a series of storms that returns our weather pattern back to a more typical one for this time of year: cooler, with scattered showers and mountain snow. Showers will continue on and off Friday through most of the weekend. By Saturday, highs will only be in the upper 50s and snow lines falling down close to Pass level. Ski resorts will enjoy some fresh late season powder, but the early run of late spring weather will be at an end for the rest of us.
Have a great Wednesday!
Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton
