WEATHER SUMMARY DISCUSSION - Presented by Pressure Point Roofing
The ridge of high pressure that brought us the gorgeous weather for Sunday and Monday has been moving east at a much quicker rate than expected. As a result, we are seeing clouds and moisture arrive sooner than it looked like they might even yesterday. Showers have already moved over the area overnight. Expect those to continue. The flow is out of the south so the air mass remains mild with high snow levels. In this case up around 8000 feet. We will see a better chance for steady state light rain develop overnight and into Friday morning. As we get into Friday expect the activity to turn showery once again. Skies will become partly cloudy. Once we get through Friday, the forecasts into early next week look on track. Sunny skies remain expected for Monday President's Day following clouds and a chance for showers on Sunday which is Valentine's Day.
Right now it appears the storm door reopens Tuesday night and a trough of low pressure will set up over us. And, this is when winter is expected to return. Clouds and rain will arrive first, and the colder air comes working in. One forecasting model has snow levels back down as low as 3000 feet by Thursday afternoon into Thursday evening. We will just have to see how the timing of that works out. But, one thing was and is clear. This recent spate of sunny and warm weather was merely a respite. There is still more winter to come. And, we could yet see more significant snow for the mountains. But, one thing the longer range profiles are pointing out is that we have less than a 10 percent chance of seeing valley floor snow developing between now and April 1st. While anything is still possible, this means the odds against it are very long indeed.
