WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY goes into effect tomorrow from 7am to 9pm for the entire area.
Rain and snow shower threat will end this evening but skies still look gray. Clouds will break up later briefly before thickening overnight. Temperatures fall from the upper 30s to the low 30s. Winds remain northwesterly about 5mph.
Morning lows start off in the low to mid 20’s. Clouds thicken up and as a clipper slides in, we’ll see light snow develop as early as 8am.
Most of the area should get through the morning drive with little to no issues. As we head towards noon time, the snow will spread across the area and become steady for several hours into the early evening before tapering and becoming scattered light snow to flurries. Highs will only move to about 32 degrees then fall back to the mid 20’s overnight.
Right now it looks like generally a 1 to 3” amount. There may be pockets of higher amounts further north and west in the higher elevations. Most of the accumulating snows will fall during the afternoon and evening which would impact the evening drive so be sure to allow for extra time for your ride home.
High pressure is slated to arrive by Thursday producing drier conditions for a few days. Temperatures will be cool but close to seasonal averages in the mid to upper 30s. Our next system arrives Saturday as it rides up the coast and will glance us with some light snow showers as of now but the track will be key in just how much snow we end up with. We’ll keep you posted in the upcoming days. Sunday looks quiet but a relatively moisture starved front will slide through and will be followed by a punch of colder air for Monday. Highs only in the upper 20s and morning lows in the teens, there may also be a few flurries too. Tuesday looks to start out cold but with more sunshine around we should be able to warm to the low 30s.
