.DISCUSSION...
A strong cold front roared through the region this morning.
Scattered snow showers and strong northwest winds are expected for
the balance of today. Winds will subside some tonight but remain
gusty through Friday. Saturday and Sunday look mainly dry and mild
with winds increasing again late Sunday. Light showers are
possible Sunday night as a weak spring storm passes by.
Simulations continue to show potential for an atmospheric river
landfall in the region late next week. While only low-medium
confidence right now, if this occurs heavier rains could result in
increased flood risk.
