Some thunderstorms popping up around the area this evening. It’s been warm the past few days and with the moisture pumping up from the South and daytime heating, we are seeing some cool cloud formations and some showers.
We could see more thunder showers tomorrow but the temperatures should be cooler in the 50′s to near 60. The cut-off low is trending further South but we will see moisture start to stream in on Wednesday.
The snow levels are looking higher with this track and we should see rain all the way up to 9000 ft. on Wednesday. Then Wednesday night the cold trough begins to approach from the NW. The snow levels will begin to come down towards 8000 ft. or a little lower. We could see a few inches above 8000 ft. Wednesday night.
Then the cold front pushes through Thursday with continued precip and falling snow levels. At lake level we shouldn’t see any accumulations with the warm ground. On the mountains above 7000 ft. we could see a few more inches. Once again the Euro is bringing in twice as much liquid as the GFS and the Euro won with the last storm. The possibility is there that we could see a foot of snow above 8000 ft. along the crest and several inches above 7000 ft. Thursday.
We will have to keep watching. It’s always hard to believe snow is coming after really warm temps especially this time of year. At lake level temps will only be in the 40′s Thursday and Friday. I will take another look tomorrow at the amount of precip and snow levels. BA
