Cold start leads into sunny and decent day today


DISCUSSION: Plenty of dry time is expected through the day as temperatures return to the low 40s this afternoon. Weak disturbance exits the region this afternoon as any upslope snow for the higher elevations comes to a halt. The afternoon will shape up to be pretty decent as most of us see highs just a couple degrees below average. Sunshine will increase through the day, which will help us feel somewhat comfortable.

Thursday hourly planner.

A pretty nice day overall if you don’t mind the chilly December temperatures. More quiet time is expected tonight as we drop into the 30s and upper 20s.

Quiet and chilly tonight.

Another weak front arrives Friday. Cloudy skies will return early on in the day. A few light showers will be possible through the middle of the day, though nothing too widespread is expected. Highs on Friday will be in the mid and upper 40s.

A few showers Friday, but dry into the weekend.

The weekend is looking pretty good right now! High pressure returns on Saturday and brings back sunny conditions. After a cold start, we will warm up to the upper 40s by the afternoon. Sunday looks to be even warmer with temperatures making it very close to 50. While clouds will increase ahead of our next storm system, we should stay pretty rain free until we start out the work week.

Warmer temperatures in the upper 50s are in store for Monday. Rain does begin to move in however and will continue into Tuesday. Rain could get heavy Tuesday afternoon, but will be mainly rain as highs are back in the 50s. Cold air moves in Tuesday night and lingering moisture could switch to wintry mix by early Wednesday morning before we clear out for Wednesday afternoon. We will be cooler at that point with highs in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Much of November featured temperatures that are below average, which has allowed us to feel almost like winter at times. For the most part though, our daytime and overnight temperatures have stayed above the freezing mark of 32 degrees and most of our precipitation has fallen as rain. Changes are in store this month though as snow becomes a more regular thing every week. To get a general idea of amounts, our average snowfall for the month of December is 12.9 inches (We normally pick up just between 2 to 3 inches in November).
