Weather Forecast (updated Friday, Oct. 31st @ 12:30am © 2014): WIND & WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FOR SATURDAY
We'll enjoy one more nice day today before low pressure and associated cold front rolls into the area this weekend for our first real taste of winter weather for the season! Looking at partly cloudy skies out there today with highs actually still making it into the 60's, but clouds and winds will be on the increase by afternoon, however, I'm still optimistic our weather will remain dry for all the Halloween festivities. Clouding up Friday night with southwest winds increasing 15-30mph and local gusts to 40 as our cold front approaches with rain and snow showers developing around midnight, continuing into Saturday morning as the frontal boundary passes through the area. The snow level may start off a tad high with a good southerly flow and decent orographic lift, above 8,000 feet, lowering to near 6,000 sometime Saturday morning after frontal passage where accumulations above 6,000ft. of 1-3" are possible, double this is likely at resort level and above 7,500ft.; but the ground has yet to freeze and snow will have a tough time accumulating after sunrise under strong radiational heating. Periodic showers will persist Saturday as the cold & unstable air mass settles into the region with highs only in the lower 40's, even lows could dip into the teens for the first time this season. One fly in the ointment is a secondary cutoff low that could develop across the region Sunday, which could keep a chance of showers around before this whole system departs by Monday with a cool, dry offshore flow developing through midweek; warming more substantially later in the period. If you have travel plans into the mountains this weekend, carry tire chains and be prepared for hazardous driving in rapidly changing weather conditions, travel with care.
