Looking at nice weather over the next couple of days with warmer temperatures and dry conditions as daytime highs hover near 50 degrees through through tomorrow, while overnight lows generally cool to the 20's. Another Pacific storm will deepen off the west coast through the end of the week, moving inland over the weekend. While the deepest moisture and heaviest precipitation will occur to our north, a cold front will sweep through our area over the weekend with locally heavy snowfall possible on Saturday, tapering off on Sunday. I think we will stay mostly dry on Friday with clouds and winds on the increase throughout the day as this storm approaches. Highs will cool to the mid 40's along with southwest winds 15-25 mph, gusts near 30 mph are possible by afternoon. Snow showers will increase Friday night with the heaviest arriving on Saturday, tapering off to scattered snow showers by early Sunday. Gusty southwest winds will also accompany this storm with gusts 40-50 mph possible, making for treacherous travel. Daytime highs will drop into the mid and lower 30's this weekend as lows dive back into the teens. This is an Arctic low diving south from Alaska so expect the snow level to fall from around 5,000 feet on Saturday to as low as 3,000 feet on Sunday with the potential for up to 6-12 inches of snow. Locally a foot or more is possible in a few locations, especially above 7,000 feet and in our western areas. Things look to dry out early next week, but another storm is possible later in the week. The forecast will continue to be adjusted as we get closer, and the full picture comes into better focus. When traveling to the mountains during the winter months, be prepared for hazardous winter weather driving conditions, always plan ahead, and carry tire chains.
