Wind Slowly Dies Down Tuesday


Tuesday, another brutally cold start to the day is on the table. Morning lows back into the teens and single digits will feel like below 0 for some as winds are still on the stronger side. Relief comes this afternoon as winds die down briefly, temperatures still only make it back to the low to mid-30s though.

Wednesday brings another big swing in temperatures back into the 40s as winds once again start back out of the south. We’ll still start the day into the 20s so don’t think you can shed the jacket completely! Past the changing temperatures wind will be another big story for the day, gusts up to 30mph will be building in as a dry cold front approaches from the west.

Thursday, we see winds die down fairly quickly through the morning hours. Any remaining wind will slowly shift from the south to the north as the day goes on, setting the stage for some evening and overnight upslope snow showers. Accumulations will be minor if any since both Wednesday and Thursday feature highs in the 40s, anywhere with some remaining snowpack might be able to squeeze out an inch at most.

Friday some remaining upslope snow is possible into the morning leading to some slick conditions across the region. Otherwise, we’ll dry out but remain cloudy throughout the day. We’ll see winds out of the northwest through the rest of the day too.

Saturday, we’re looking drier with even some breaks of sun possible. We’ll remain chilly though with some not even able to break the freezing mark by the afternoon. Overall a very classic cold winter day.

Sunday, we’ll watch for a system to try and climb out of the south and bring us some snow through the afternoon and overnight. There is a lot of disagreement surrounding this system, and for now, the trends surrounding this system haven’t been very favorable but the potential remains for the time being. Regardless we will be cold enough to see snow as the dominant precip type if it all comes together.

Monday, snow showers are possible as temperatures remain chilly across the region. Clouds remain in the forecast but breaks of sun and even some clearing east of the mountains remains possible. Highs will be in the 30s for most.

In the extended forecast, unsettled weather remains. The second half of January is looking to be just as active as the first half so this is no surprise. Overall this period looks chilly too, so a mid-January thaw doesn’t look too likely this year.
