DISCUSSION: Mostly dry and stable conditions will continue,
promoting milder temperatures over the terrain. A dramatic
pattern change begins Friday afternoon/evening when a cold front
ushers in a period of accumulating snowfall and colder
temperatures Friday into Saturday. West winds will become
especially breezy over the terrain Friday, and again Sunday into
early next week as the next series of wet systems approach.
