.DISCUSSION...Dry an cold weather is expected today. Temperatures
this afternoon could end up lower than what is in the forecast if
cloud cover increases earlier in the day, thus slowing down the
amount of warming. A disturbance moving west of the burn area
could bring light snow late tonight through at least Wednesday
morning. We could see improvement in the weather Wednesday
afternoon if the disturbance moves out quicker, but confidence
on this is not high. Another system is projected to bring
another round of snow Thursday morning.
