Discussion

One Last Day of Calm

One more day of calm precedes the advancing weather feature for the early week. Expect slowly developing southerly winds and clouds, but otherwise another pleasant day to wrap up the holiday weekend. By Tomorrow, rains begin to develop as a low crosses overhead, continuing into the evening before the main cold-frontal push.

Post-frontal mountain rain showers transition to snow from the most elevated to the valleys throughout Monday night into Tuesday; accumulations are likely to be minimal behind this drier system, however, with a few inches possible at only the most exposed and highest areas. Things start to dry out and taper off by Tuesday Evening as the upper-level low pulls away.

Things remain chilly but dry in the arctic air mass Wednesday, with some recovery by Thursday ahead of yet another tricky system which could provide a variety of weather depending on exact track; stay tuned!
