Justin’s Tuesday Night Forecast Discussion:
Still mild and cloudy overnight but we should hold onto the dry weather for most of the night tonight. Lows will only make it down into the mid (and in some spots, upper) 40s before the front arrives. Interestingly, we’re looking at a midnight high for Wednesday- meaning the warmest time of the day will be in the early morning, with temps falling into the upper to mid 30s throughout the afternoon.
With the cold air spilling in behind the front, snow levels will also drop quickly from 4500 feet to 1000 feet by early Thursday. They’ll stay that low throughout the rest of the week. Smaller disturbances roll in with the cold air so expect up to a foot or more snow at the Passes and above. With low snow levels, any shower that turns heavy Wed. night through Friday may pull snow lines down to the valley floor at times. We’re not looking at accumulating snow but snow bursts and a light dusting overnights are not out of the question. Highs will also struggle to get out of the 30s by week’s end.
The weekend looks fairly quiet with a slight chance for some showers both Saturday and Sunday but a slight bump in the temps back into the low to mid 40s. We’ll keep watching the snow levels and let you know what the possibility will be for valley snow tomorrow and the rest of the week!
Have a great Wednesday!
