Our highs are going to be set this morning. Temperatures are in the 30s and 40s to start. We will notice temperatures continue to trickle down into the lower 30s and upper 20s.

The low pressure system that brought the torrential downpours yesterday is continuing to head off the coast. Cold air is surging in behind allowing the moisture backed behind the system to fall in the form of snow. The snowfall map below is showing totals from this morning into Sunday morning.

Scattered snow showers will continue to hang around all day today.

Overnight we will witness more drier conditions with a few showers still hovering around. Temperatures will fall into the lower 20s.

Winds will be very breezy today. Wind Advisories are issued for our eastern slopes until 6 PM. Gusts up to 45 MPH are possible. With the ground being very saturated we could easily see downed trees along with power outages.

Throughout Saturday temperatures will rise into the upper 30s. We start off dry and keep a drier trend into the afternoon. By later afternoon-evening we will notice a few rain/snow showers making their way once again. These showers won't be widespread. They will last into the overnight hours into our Sunday morning.

By Sunday afternoon the sunshine should try and peak back out and highs will head into the middle 40s with dry conditions.
