The main part of the western storm that has kept us cold and cloudy for days has moved east, but a part of it is left behind and won’t be east of us until later on Saturday. So we should continue colder than average with cloudy periods and some flurries or light snow. Accumulation should be minor, if any. It does look like Saturday should have some breaks in the cloud cover and temperatures pushing into the 40s in the lower elevations.
Sunday will be the mild day of the weekend ahead of the next cold front. Monday is likely to turn colder with snow developing from north to south. It looks like this could be another significant snowfall with around 6 inches in parts of the urban corridor. But more on that as we get closer. One thing to note is that despite our long stretch of cold days, we have not seen record levels. Monday’s cold front has the potential to be colder than this recent stretch, possibly getting into the teens Tuesday morning in the lower elevations.
