The snow did come, and it was very beautiful. If you don’t like snow, you will be happy as it will melt away over the next couple of days. But for tonight and tomorrow night it will help lead to some colder overnights and with that full moon it could be pretty bright out during the night (when it’s clear of course).
The rest of the week will stay on the cool side, but a moderating trend will commence this Friday, but it we won’t feel the full impact until next week (Tuesday – Wednesday). Right now the huge storm off the west coast is about ready to slam the west with lots, and lots of rain (up to 10”) with heavy snow in the mountains. This storm has also flooded much of the nation with warm air from the warm Pacific Ocean. This will lead to a “heat wave” in the central US, and two day warm up for us.
But to get to that temporary warm up, the cold air will have to be moved, and I feel it will not go easily or without a fight. Some snow will likely fall but it should stay to our north, as we get some light rain especially late Sunday - Monday.
Here is my forecast:
Tonight: decreasing clouds … some fog possible … low around 24
Wednesday: mostly sunny … still cold … highs around 40
Wednesday night: mostly clear with a full moon … very cold … lows near 21 … some upper teens in sheltered colder spots
Thursday: mostly sunny … seasonal with a high near 44
Friday: sun and clouds … milder with a high near 47
Saturday: clouds and sun highs in the 40s
Sunday: increasing clouds … some light rain possible at night … high near 50
Until later …
