Saturday we will see mostly sunny skies with colder air in place. Highs in the 30s. Winds turning northerly and gusting 40-50+ mph up top during the afternoon.
Mostly sunny skies again for Sunday with highs warming back into the 40s at the base and 30s on the upper mountain. Lighter east winds.
Monday – Friday:
The next system approaching the West Coast is going to split with a closed low forming and dropping south off of the CA coast Monday-Wednesday missing us. That will keep us dry through Friday. We should see mostly sunny skies throughout the week. Highs warming into the 40s on the upper mountain and near 50 degrees at the base by midweek.
The pattern is still expected to start shifting next weekend. We could see a system move into CA with rain & snow Saturday and possibly linger into next Sunday. Right now there is uncertainty on the track and if this system will just be weak with a few showers, or if it could bring some heavier rain/snow. We will be tracking it all week with updated details as they become clearer.
The long-range models suggest the more active pattern could continue through the 2nd week of March. We may continue to see weak/moderate strength systems moving into the West Coast.
