Less showers through the afternoon, but cold and breezy from here on out

Weather

DISCUSSION: Temperatures will drop throughout the day after this front pushes out, though light showers will still fall during our afternoon. We could see some snow mixing in at times during the afternoon and evening, especially the western slopes.

Thursday planner.

Overnight we are looking very chilly with 20s and even teens possible. Wind chill values will make it feel even colder, especially in the higher terrain. Watch for a refreeze, although snow accumulation looks fairly minimal.

High pressure then looks to build in and keep us pretty quiet for most Friday into the weekend, with Friday’s temperatures below average before a rebound Saturday. Highs on Friday will only be in the upper 20s and we could see a snow shower to start before we dry out. Saturday will bring temperatures closer to average in the low 40s. Sunday is also looking drier for the most part with highs in the upper 40s. This is great news as we need consecutive dry days to help lower some of the streams, creeks and rivers.

We look to start the work week off on a dry note. Showers do returns by Tuesday however. We could even see a few showers very late on Monday night. Another batch of heavy rain is possible Tuesday. Wednesday looks to feature a few lingering flurries behind that system before starting to clear out, and the remainder of the week looks quiet at the moment. Temperatures also look to remain above average through much of next week.

The rest of February is looking fairly mild and above average. Punxsutawney Phil has predicted an early spring for the second year in a row. As of right now it looks like he may be right! We also look very active as we need to keep rain chances in for much of this week.
