Chief Meteorologist Justin Stapleton‘s Daily Forecast Discussion:
Steady rain at times with a warm front bringing the next wave of rain across the region tonight. Breezy, especially at the coast overnight and lows sticking around 50 degrees. A few more soggy days are in store before we get a mini-break going into parts of the weekend.
The next two days will be fairly wet at the coast and inland valleys as back to back fronts will push through. Rainfall estimates are anywhere from 1-2″ in total at the coast and around an inch in the valleys. Closer to the passes, travelers will see some icy conditions with 1-2″ of new snow to deal with. Highs will also be well below normal, only topping out in the mid 50s each day.
By early Saturday, we might actually get about a 8 hour dry window as the next storm won’t arrive until Saturday evening. Sunday and isolated showers Monday but that should be the last of it for a few days and temperatures will be slowly rising back into the low 60s. In fact, indications are a nice quick warm up back into the low 70s by Tuesday and Wednesday! We’ll see if that trend continues.
Have a great Wednesday night!
