Saturday – Monday:
Thursday through Monday we should see mostly sunny skies and highs into the 40s.
A cold trough digs into the West by Monday night into Tuesday and it could remain through Thursday. Most of the precipitation with the cold front stays to our east, but a few clouds and a stray snow shower are possible Tuesday. Then mostly sunny Wednesday into Thursday.
Highs drop into the 30s at the base and 20s up top Tuesday into Wednesday. Then we start to slowly warm Thursday but highs may remain in the 30s.
Ridgetop winds increase from the north Tuesday gusting up to 40+ mph by afternoon. Then to 80+ mph Wednesday possibly closing some upper mountain lifts & making it feel even colder! Then coming down later Wednesday into Thursday.
High pressure is forecast to move closer to the West coast by the end of next week into the 2nd week of February. That could bring back slightly warmer high temperatures, and that should also keep us in a drier pattern for now.
There are some signs that things could start to shift in a positive direction for storms around mid-month into the 2nd half of February. We’ll let you know at the first sign of any storms headed our way!
