TODAY’S WEATHER DISCUSSION AND FORECAST:
This morning we will have a brief break in between systems. The WINTER STORM WARNING will remain in effect through 3am Wednesday for the mountains above the 5500′ level for the possibility of heavy snow. Fog, low clouds, rain and snow are all in the forecast for the local mountains today. Showers should begin later this morning lasting through Wednesday morning. The snow levels are running higher than expected due to a slight change in trajectory. These storms are taking a little more southerly approach to the area than expected therefore the freezing levels are running higher than forecast. This will continue to be the case today as the next in this series of storms arrive. Snow levels today will be around the 5500′-6000′ level. Wednesday morning this system will move out with some clearing before the next and last system arrives. This storm for Thursday will be much warmer and have higher precipital water levels around 1.00-1.20″, these last storms have been running around .75-.80″. So the rainfall amounts should be pretty good. Also the winds will be from the South West which will add orographic lift to help bolster the rainfall amounts along the South and West facing slopes. Snow levels are expected to be around the 7000-8000′ level Thursday. Flash Flooding, Debris flows, etc will make for poor driving conditions, so plan a little extra time. State and County crews will continue to be on 24hour duty so be aware of their vehicles clearing the roadways. Rainfall totals through Friday morning may exceed 4″ in some locations locally. Friday and the weekend will be mostly dry with clearing skies. Enjoy.
