Meteorologist Marisa Woloszyn’s Forecast Discussion
Clear skies, light winds and moisture-filled air Wednesday night, will be the perfect set-up for a thick layer of fog Thursday morning; the fog should hang around until lunchtime, before burning off. We’ll have a few hours of good sunshine before the clouds move in ahead of the next system. The system’s front will move through late Thursday night and Friday; showers will be scattered to isolated and broken up with sunbreaks.
Another front will move through Saturday and Sunday. This front will bring cold air behind it and drop snow levels to near 3,000 ft, meaning a wintery mix may occur along mountain passes. All shower activity will be isolated and light though; highs temps will be near in the mid to upper 50 degrees.
We remain in an unstable air mass as we head into next week. This will continue to keep scattered showers across the area. The center of the unstable air mass, or low pressure system, will move close to the coast during this time and create a pretty significant pressure gradient. A strong pressure gradient means gusty winds, which will accompany the rainy conditions.
Have a Transcendent Thursday!
