As a cold front inches toward us from the west to start the week, cloud cover will begin to really build in overnight tonight. With warmer southerly winds, temps won't drop quite as low this evening, falling into the upper 30s/low 40s.
A few spotty showers may pop up during the morning hours Monday, but most will just be cloudy, breezy, and mild, with highs in the 50s Monday afternoon. Rain will further develop after sunset Monday night, becoming widespread and heavy in spots through early Tuesday. Temps will hold in the 50s tomorrow night with a warm southerly wind ahead of the incoming front.
Highs will likely occur in the morning hours Tuesday (50s); but temperatures will drop quickly as the front passes and begins to move out of the area Tuesday afternoon! Rain will begin to change over to snow Tuesday afternoon at the highest elevations, and eventually everyone will see snow showers develop overnight Tuesday night and through early Wednesday morning. Lows by Wednesday morning will be in the 20s for most. Snow looks to end by midday Wednesday, but we will be cold and blustery with high temps in the 30s midweek.
While we've still got a little time for snow amounts to go up and down, most models are leaning toward the 2-4" or 3-5" range as far as snowfall goes Tuesday night-Wednesday. Stay tuned, after looking at more weather data, an official snowfall map will be posted on-air and online by the end of the day Monday.
