This week should be better than last week

Posted Sunday, January 13th, 2019 by Tyler West

TLDR: Continued sun for most of Mon with increasing clouds on Tue and light precipitation late Tue into Wed afternoon (likely 3-6” during that span).  Then a more potent storm Thu morning through late Fri night.

Short-Mid Term:  Mountain sun and valley clouds/fog/smog will continue into tomorrow (Mon). Valley locations impacted by clouds today should see the same tomorrow.  Tue we’ll see increasing clouds throughout the day in the mountains with light snow beginning to fall Tue evening from a weak, but relatively moist, short-wave trough.  The bulk of precipitation with this trough will arrive Wed morning and early projections are 3-6” through Wed afternoon.

Long Term:  We’ll see a brief break late Wed with the leading edge of a stronger storm arriving Thu morning.  Snow will continue off/on through Thu night with the cold front arriving Fri morning and snow tapering off by Fri night.  If current forecasts hold, this should be a notable snow producer between Thu morning and early Sat morning…more to follow as we get closer.
