Our spring-time pattern continues with brief low accumulation storms and high winds followed by periods of clearing and sunny skies.
Friday: Expect brisk north winds with gusts reaching up to 85mph over ridgetops this morning and cloudy skies as the latest spring storm exits the area leading to diminished clouds and slightly calmer winds in the afternoon. An inch of new accumulation since last night is possible. Below average temperatures should reach the low 30s around 10,000’.
Saturday: Sunny skies return with temperatures creeping into the upper 30s around 10,000’, and decreasing northeast winds with gusts into the 40s over ridgetops.
Long-term: A brief weak shortwave is expected to brush across the region Sunday night into Monday morning bringing some snow flurries with no real accumulation expected. A brief high pressure ridge bringing dry conditions returns thru mid week, before yet another fast short wave disturbance breaks it down leading the way for more pacific moisture and another possible Atmospheric River by weeks-end.
