Today is the calm before the storm, with above average temperatures reaching into the mid 40s near 10,000’, cloudy skies, and light winds with moderate gusts at ridgetops.
Thursday, winds will increase significantly with 100mph gusts at higher elevations by the afternoon before snowfall begins Thursday night into Friday. 1-1.5ft of snow looks likely for the mountains. Snow levels should begin under 8000’, dropping to valley floors by Friday morning.
High pressure returns for Saturday, and then Sunday night into Monday becomes unsettled as another storm moves in off the pacific, but unfortunately the brunt of this storm is now looking like it will stay north of us.
