Forecast Discussion

Arctic air arrived today on gusty NW winds. High temperatures occurred this morning as the mercury gradually fell through the day, we'll hit very cold numbers tonight. Factoring in the wind and the fact that we have not seen this kind of cold in nearly 10 months, it's going to feel MIGHTY COLD. Snow? We're squeezing blood out of a turnip. The air is dry, but with this sharp a fall in temperatures, a few snowflakes are a decent bet. Snow showers and flurries fly early Friday morning with a bit of moisture banked up against the west side of the mountains.

Saturday is clear and cold, but the afternoon will not be as cold as Friday. Saturday night, valleys will be colder than mountaintops.

Computer guidance is rather inconsistent for next week. Here's a broad sweep at the general progression of events, but issues with timing details and moisture availability abound...
A weak front approaches from the west Monday. Clouds increase late Sunday and spotty light rain or showers are possible late Sunday night and Monday. A second front arrives late Tuesday with another round of cold air lagging well behind. Tuesday has lots of clouds still with the chance of a few showers. Then colder air returns Wednesday.
