Ben's Weather Forecast Updated: Thursday, Feb 23 @ 11:05am
Our main story continues to be the cooler, windy weather through the end of the week and the new series of storms forecast to arrive over the weekend. We're in for a cool & breezy day out there today under mostly sunny skies as highs struggle to make it out of the 30's this afternoon; northerly winds 10-20mph could push wind chill values into the teens throughout the day; winds tapering off around sunset. Temperatures will recover a tad Friday and Saturday as highs top out in the mid 40's with overnight lows generally in the teens and 20's. Clouds and winds will also be in the increase throughout the day on Saturday as our first storm approaches, with a chance of snow showers developing late Saturday night. Sunday, our first system is forecast to push through the region with scattered light showers possible; the snow level may start off around 6,000 feet; windy and cooler. Our second storm rolls through Monday, this one colder, pushing the snow level to down around 4,000 feet with snow showers possible into Monday night, tapering off Tuesday morning. Latest model runs are backing off somewhat on precip & intensity, but models flip flop on a daily basis so we'll see what tomorrow brings. Regardless, we'll enjoy fair and warmer weather late next week with some early spring-like conditions as we heade into March. If travel plans take you into the mountains, be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions; plan ahead and always carry tire chains!
