Looking at a nice finish to our week, as the offshore flow increases temperatures will increase with dry weather forecast through the weekend. A new winter storm will bring a good shot at some wintry weather on Monday, depending on the exact track, snowfall accumulations could be fairly significant. Expect mostly sunny skies out there today with north-northeast winds 5-10 as highs reach the mid to upper 40's. We'll remain under clear skies tonight with light winds and lows in the teens to lower 20's. Saturday should be pleasant with increasing high clouds as westerly winds increase 10-20mph by afternoon with highs in the 40's. Low pressure will begin its approach from the north on Sunday with clouds and winds on the increase. Cooler as highs drop into the 30's with southwest winds gusting to around 25mph by afternoon. Snow showers could develop by Sunday evening, but the main event appears to be Sunday night into Monday as this very cold low drops into the region. This system is dropping south directly out of Canada and will not tap into warmer, subtropical moisture. That said, rainfall amounts will generally be lower than in recent storms, but the potential is higher for heavy snowfall. The snow level could drop down as lows as 2,000 feet with around 6-12 inches of snow looking very possible above about 4,000 feet. The other variable to consider is the exact track of this low, should we set up a decent backslider, wrap-around moisture could help boost our snowfall totals with snow showers even lingering into Tuesday. Skies should clear by the middle of the week with fair and gradually warmer weather returning. If you have travel plans into the mountains, always be prepared for hazardous travel and icy roads with rapidly changing weather conditions, and always carry chains!
