Tuesday is shaping up to be an alright day for the end of February, a bit of sun for most and temperatures are heading near average. Tonight we do get a bit colder with most running below the freezing mark but we still remain near average for the end of February!
Friday, we see a chance for some showers throughout the day with mixing likely across the mountains. This won’t be a very organized system so precipitation chances are on the low for the day time. Highs hover around the low 40s for most. By the evening we have a better chance to see rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow all try to mix together. West of I 77 will be mainly rain, but east of I 77 could bring that mixed bag. Regardless, it doesn’t look like much in terms of accumulation.
Saturday we take another shot at the 50s across the low elevations while the mountains get stuck a bit cooler as a rain maker makes it way through. For most once again just some plain old rain. For the mountains there could be some mixing but for now the forecast is trending away from that which means even in the high terrain we should see mainly rain.
Sunday a fairly similar story plays out as another wave of low pressure rides up a stalled frontal boundary. Most end up back in the 50s while the mountains maintain just enough cold to maybe see some snow/sleet mixed in, mainly at night.
Monday, another round of rain is possible. We aren’t able to shake this stalled boundary just yet as the atmosphere gets a little stagnant. At this point multi-day rain totals are starting to add up into the 2-4-inch plus range. Throughout this period those in flood prone areas should be mindful there could be some stream and creek flooding.
Tuesday, it looks like one last burst of showers will push it’s way in before we dry out for the afternoon hours. This last push of showers won’t add much to our already high rain totals, but could be the push some areas need with already potentially swollen bodies of water.
Another round of showers is possible for Wednesday but for now chances are low. Otherwise fairly cloudy weather should be expected to remain. Temperatures near average in the mid 40s will hold on but it certainly won’t be as warm as it has been.
The signals of our unsettled weather pattern continue to make themselves known in the extended forecast. Likely we see a few more chances for rain, and even possibly for some snow as temperatures look to swing a little bit through this period.
