Throughout today temperatures will remain warmer than average in the 50s. This morning we are starting off with temperatures scattered in the 40s and upper 30s. Winds are picking up in speed. Some areas are noticing gusts roughly 20 mph. Winds will continue throughout today from the south/southwest at 10-15 mph with gusts picking up around 25 mph and higher. Rain is going to continue to creep in starting this morning. Heaviest rain will be present this morning and this afternoon. Showers will become more scattered in nature throughout the later afternoon-evening and the overnight hours. Most of the area seems to be dry overnight.
Tomorrow morning, a cold front will swing through providing another round of showers. Temperatures will start off warm in the 50s, but cold air rushes in allowing temperatures to continue to fall throughout the day. With that in mind, rain will change over to freezing rain/snow sometime in the later afternoon. Snow will then be present throughout Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
So far, models have totals all over the place but a general consensus shows roughly 2-4" for the western slopes with less amounts likely heading to the east (Trace-1"). More model runs will come out throughout the day to allow us to better tailor our forecast for snow totals. Another factor to determine accumulations is how quickly rain will transition into snow.
Looking ahead, we will continue to have cooler air pooling in for Wednesday through the work week. Highs will only be in the 30s.
