WEEKEND CLOUDS, BUT PRECIOUS LITTLE RAINFALL
Chilly overnight low this morning as temperatures dipped into the low 30s in the South Valley and upper 20s in our mountain locations and that's transcended into today's high temperatures where here in the South Valley we can't seem to break the mid-50s. Mostly cloudy skies are taking over the area today from an area of low pressure that's now situated offshore. Tonight, this low will dip south and move onshore, allowing for more instability, which will bring us a chance for some rain after 10 PM tonight in the South Valley. Throughout the overnight hours, the higher elevations will see snow with snow levels dropping to 3,500' with no more than 2" is expected in our mountains. This system quickly moves east of the area tomorrow and following closely behind another trough, which may bring us more rain/snow tomorrow night with scattered showers on Monday.
By Tuesday, the Rex Block pattern that has been blocking systems from moving east into our area will finally break down, as the low to the south of the high begins to move east. This low will combine with the other system moving in Sunday night and will potentially bring a little more rain by Mardi Gras. After that both systems continue to move out of the area high pressure will start to move inland, helping to push temperatures back to normal. By Friday, the high moves onshore and this will bring the 70s back into the forecast by your weekend!
Have a great Saturday!
